Eight killed in US drone attack in Pakistan
The strike took place around 9.30 p.m. in the Mir Ali area of Miranshah, a town in North Waziristan, reported Xinhua citing a TV channel.
A house suspected of being a militant's hideout and a vehicle were targeted in the strike.

The strike came shortly after the Pakistani leadership Friday expressed discontentment with a top US military official's accusation that Pakistan's spy agency ISI is supporting the Al Qaeda-linked Haqqani network in Afghanistan, which is targeting US-led international forces.
