In the late evening, two missiles destroyed a mud-brick house just outside Miranshah, killing between one and four people.
Eyewitness Qasim Noor, a student, told Associated Press: ‘It was an unusually big bang. Since it was extremely cold I didn’t leave the house, but could see a house on fire. In the morning, we saw a modest mud house had been destroyed.’
Pakistani officials said the dead were foreign fighters and included Arabs and possibly Uzbeks.
