2 drone attacks kill 15 in NWA

MIRANSHAH: Two back-to-back US drones killed at least 15 people in North Waziristan on Saturday, marking the beginning of the New Year. Security officials in Miranshah confirmed the attack occurred in Mandi Khel, where two US drones fired four missiles.
Mandi Khel and the surrounding area considered to be a stronghold of the Haqqani network. Security officials said the men killed in these strikes are thought to be attached to militant commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur.
Drone strikes by the US in Pakistan’s tribal areas have increased in the recent past with reports that the US is seeking to expand its covert drone campaign which has drawn much criticism from the public. The Pakistani government has publicly condemned drone attacks, but cables released by WikiLeaks recently revealed that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had allowed drone strikes, saying they would protest the attacks in the National Assembly and then ignore them. -Agencies
