Two More Britons Killed by US Drone Attack in Pakistan

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that two British citizens have been killed in a US drone attack in North Waziristan.  The drone attack took place on Friday December 10th when local Pakistani media reported that US drones fired four Hellfire missiles at a vehicle and compound near Datta Khel.  

If reports are correct – and the British Foreign Office are saying at this stage that they are investigating the reports  – it will be the second time in three months that British citizens have been killed in US drone strikes in Pakistan.  In October, as we reported at the time, Abdul Jabbar a British citizen reportedly from Birmingham, was killed in Waziristan.    

No doubt there will be more on this story soon.
