ISLAMABAD, May 9 : Up to ten persons were killed in suspected U.S. drone attack in Pakistan's tribal region on Saturday, private TV channel Geo reported.


    Suspected U.S. drones fired four missiles at a house and a Madrassa at Sararogha area of South Waziristan, a tribal area bordering Afghanistan, said the report.


    Local people pulled eight bodies out of the rubble. Seven others were injured and two of them later died of wounds in hospital.
