In another drone strike in North Waziristan on Thursday night, three militants are reported to have been killed, according to a report in Dawn

The report said that apart from the three suspected militants several others were injured when two missiles were fired by a U.S. drone on a compound in Angar Kalli area near Miramshah Tehsil around midnight. The identity of those killed is not known yet.

The drone strike takes place during a blockade of NATO supply trucks by the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The party had filed a complaint naming the CIA station chief here as responsible for the earlier strike in Hangu on a madrassa which killed some members of the Haqqani Network and four others.
