Kurram Agency [Pakistan], Mar. 2 (ANI): At least two men have reportedly been killed by a suspected U.S. drone strike in a village in Kurram Agency near the Afghanistan border on Thursday. The deceased have been identified as Saqib and Qari Abdullah. "A drone missile struck the motorcycle which caught fire and then exploded," The Express Tribune quoted Haji Zamin Hussain, a village elder from the area, as saying. According to security sources, at least five fighters of the Afghan Taliban were killed earlier this month in a US drone strike in a Pakistan-Afghanistan border region. This was the first drone strike in the region since Donald Trump became the president of the United States.(ANI)
