PESHAWAR - At least two people, including a Haqqani militant network commander, were killed after a suspected US drone targeted a vehicle on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border near Kurram Agency, officials said.

According to sources, there were at least four people in the vehicle when it was targeted that led to the killing of Haqqani network commander Jumma Khan and his aide.

An official, on condition of anonymity, said it was not immediately clear if the area was in Pakistani territory or not adding that the names and the exact number of casualties could not be officially confirmed as yet.

Earlier, last month, a suspected US drone strike targeted a hideout of the Haqqani militant network in the same area, killing four people.
