4 killed as suspected US drone hits Haqqani militants in Pakistan – report

A suspected US drone killed four people in a strike on Thursday which targeted a hideout of the Haqqani militant network along Pakistan’s mountainous border with Afghanistan, Reuters reports. If confirmed, it would be the fourth such US strike inside Pakistan since President Donald Trump took office in January. An unmanned aerial vehicle dropped two missiles on a compound housing militants under the command of a senior network commander, Abdur Rasheed Haqqani, according to two Pakistani intelligence officials and a local government officer.
