CIA drones destroyed a house in North Waziristan killing Abu Wafa al Saudi, an al Qaeda logistician.

Multiple missiles hit the house. The owner, Farman Dawar, also died in the attack. The strike came the day after US Special Forces soldiers launched a cross-border raid on a Taliban target in South Waziristan.
