Pakistan: Drone Strike Kills 18

An American drone fired missiles into a compound in the Orakzai tribal region on Thursday, killing 18 Afghans and wounding 4, a senior local official in the area said. Drone strikes are rare in Orakzai, which lies to the west of the regional capital, Peshawar. Most strikes in the C.I.A.-directed drone campaign occur along the border with Afghanistan, concentrated in North and South Waziristan.
