|Local security officials say at least four people were killed in the latest strike that targeted a vehicle in North Waziristan tribal region on Saturday. Earlier, 15 people had lost their lives after two drones fired four missiles at two vehicles and a house in the same region. One of the injured later died in hospital. The death toll is expected to rise as some of the injured are said to be in critical condition. The unsanctioned US airstrikes in Pakistan, which have increased since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, have claimed some 1184 lives in 2010.|
