PESHAWAR - At least three suspected terrorists, including a key leader of banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), were killed in a suspected US drone strike along the Pak-Afghan border in North Waziristan on Friday.

Media reports suggest that the killed TTP leader has been identified as Sajna Mehsud, naib amir of the banned terrorist organistation, while two others belong to Haqqani Network.

The political administration said that two missiles were launched targeting a compound in the Gorwek area following the suspected presence of terrorists.

On January 17, two extremists were killed in a US drone strike on a location on both sides of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The drone attack took place in Shanqilay area of Afghanistan and Badsha Kot in Pakistan.
