Drones hit the Shin Warsak area of South Waziristan, again killing a Yemeni militant.
Abdul Rehman al-Zaman Yemeni died, along with two or three other people. He was described by an anonymous intelligence official as a “mid-level al Qaeda commander, equivalent to a colonel”. The scene of the strike was very close to the site of the previous attack.
