US drones killed three to four civilians in a 3.30am strike that hit near the Darul Uloom Hassani madrassa.

Mohammad Habib Khan, whose home was also severely damaged in the attack, said the roof had collapsed, killing four ‘guests’. He said: ‘I don’t know whether these missiles were fired from some plane or not, but those killed in the attack were not terrorists.’
