At least 80 people were killed in U.S. drone strikes launched Thursday morning
in different parts of Pakistan’s northwest tribal area of North Waziristan,
reported local state-run Urdu TV channel PTV,
but the report failed to give details
other than saying 12 missiles were fired at different targets in the afore-said area.
The death toll has kept rising as more information came in from the remote area
with inadequate communication facilities.
