US Predators strike terrorist 'guesthouse' in North Waziristan

Telling that the terrorists have cordoned off the rubble while they try to recover bodies....wonder who was a guest.

US Predators struck for the first time in more than a week, in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan today, killing at least four "militants" in an attack on a "guesthouse."

Unmanned Predators or the more deadly Reapers fired up three fired three missiles at a "guesthouse" in the town of Mir Ali, according to reports from Reuters and AFP.

"The guesthouse was completely destroyed," a local Pakistani security official in Mir told AFP. "At least four militants have been killed in this US drone attack. Five other militants were injured." Officials said that several "foreigners," a term used to describe operatives from al Qaeda and allied terror groups, were present at the guesthouse.

The Taliban have surrounded the guesthosue and are conducting recovery operations. US Predators and Reapers often conduct follow-up attacks to kill the survivors.

"The house has been completely destroyed," another Pakistani official told Reuters. "Militants have cordoned off the area and are removing bodies from rubble."
