Drone Attack Kills at Least Four in Pakistan

Photo Courtesy - U.S. Air Force(WAZIRISTAN, Pakistan) -- At least four people are dead after a drone attack struck Pakistan Sunday night.

Missiles were fired at a compound in the Kaza Panga area of south Waziristan, killing four Arab militants.  The militants have not yet been idenitified, so it is unknown if the targets were high value.

The strike was the first drone attack in the country after Raymond Davis, the U.S. government official accused of killing two Pakistani men in Lahore last month, was arrested. Davis insists the men were attempting to rob him.

It was widely believed that the attacks were halted due to the deteriorating diplomatic relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan since Davis' arrest.
