Drone Strike Kills Senior Militant

Early Thursday morning, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed six people, including two members of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network, at an Islamic seminary in northwest Pakistan. Police say two of the dead include Mufti Hameedullah and Mufti Ahmad Jan. This is the first drone strike in Pakistan since Nov. 1. The Haqqanis are one of the main groups fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The incident comes just days after the assassination of Nasiruddin Haqqani, a top member of the violent Islamist faction.
