(BBC / Worthy News)– The US has resumed its drones program in Pakistan, with two strikes on militant strongholds in the North Waziristan tribal region overnight, the BBC reported.
Reports say at least 16 suspected militants were killed in the strikes.
They come days after a militant attack on Karachi airport – 39 people were killed, including the 10 attackers.
Washington uses unmanned drones to carry out strikes on Taliban and al-Qaeda targets in Pakistan's border region with Afghanistan.
However, US strikes have not taken place since 25 December 2013 in response to calls by Pakistan to halt strikes and enable peace negotiations. — Source
