Missiles hit a house at 10pm and killed a senior militant in the first known lethal drone strike in Pakistan.
Nek Mohammed was a militant leader and thorn in Islamabad’s side. He was leading a militant group in South Waziristan Agency when he died with at least five others. Pakistan originally claimed it carried out the strike, wary of revealing the US’s involvement. However, eight years later it emerged the Central Intelligence Agency and Pakistan military intelligence, the ISI, colluded to kill Mohammed.
