Thu, 01 Jan 2009 07:18:44 GMT -- Suspected US missile drones have targeted an automobile in Pakistan killing all three passengers of the vehicle and a house. Three guide-missiles launched by the drones.

The incident occurred at Lamman village in South Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Islamabad has repeatedly condemned such operations as a violation of its sovereignty, with some officials saying it undermined the country's battle with militancy and would be counter-productive. news @PRESS TV, @KUNA, @XINHUA
