North Waziristan 10/07/2014

TBIJ strike ID: Ob336

The fourth strike of the year killed 6-7 people in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan.

The dead were not initially identified but there were several vague and at time contradictory reports of their nationality and affiliation to armed groups.

Some reports said they were all foreigners: they were described variously as Arabs, Afghans and Uzbeks. Other reports said some local men were killed as well.
