Unmanned U.S. drone aircraft on Tuesday fired four missiles into North Waziristan, killing at least 20 people, local officials said.

The missiles struck a “fortress-like compound” and a vehicle in Ghulam Khan village on the Afghan border early in the morning.

“Some of the militants were on foot. They had just returned from Afghanistan when they were hit,” an intelligence official in the region said.

“So far, the death toll is 20.”
