Official: Death toll from U.S. drone strike in Pakistan rises to 26

A fresh U-S drone strike has killed at least 20 people in northwestern Pakistan.
Pakistani intelligence officials said that at least four missiles were fired at a home in the Kurram tribal region near the Afghan border on Monday. They added that the compound was being used by a militant group and that one of their commanders was killed in the attack. Washington has not commented on the strikes yet. The United States carries out internationally-condemned drone strikes in several Muslim countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya. Washington claims its drones target terrorist groups, but civilians have been the victims of the attacks in many cases.
