TBIJ strike ID: Ob328

Drones hit a house and car in or near Miranshah bazaar in the first strike in 31 days.

All but one source said three people were killed in the attack. However unnamed Pakistani intelligence officials reportedly told the Associated Press there were no fatalities in this attack. This was the first strike since Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with President Obama to discuss US drone strikes. And it was the first strike after reports from the UN and Amnesty International criticised the drone war.
