Missiles fired from a US drone aircraft have killed at least three people in north-west Pakistan, reports say.
Another security official, quoted by Reuters, said the bodies were “burned beyond recognition”.
On Thursday, at least three militants were reported to have been killed in another US drone attack in the same area.
The US has carried out scores of attacks by unmanned drones since 2008, killing hundreds of people, many of them civilians.

What a great way to start 2010, horrific missile attacks on innocent Pakistanis. And if you’re reading that last sentence and thinking, ‘they were probably militants or something,’ let me ask you this: how would you feel if Iran had killed over 300 British people in 2009 and justified it by saying they thought they might be anti-Iran?
The Pakistani government has requested that the US cease these attacks. The US ignored them. The world media sees these murders as non-events, not worthy of reporting in the TV news. Therefore, for most people, they simply aren’t happening. Ask them about deaths in Pakistan and they’ll point their fingers at Al Quaeda or the Taliban. Mere amateurs compared to the USA’s slaughter of over 1.2 million Iraqis. But there you go – the USA has obviously won the propaganda war.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner, keeps on raining down terror on the heads of Pakistanis.
