'US respects no one's sovereignty'

At least six killed and three others injured in an attack by a drone the U.S. military in the restive tribal region of northwest Pakistan, local authorities said.

Pakistani intelligence officials said at least seven missiles were fired from the aircraft known as "drone" at a vehicle and a house in the village of Degan, in the district of North Waziristan, near the Afghan border.

The area has been targeted by U.S. air strikes in the past, then that Degan was identified as a location where the group operates commandant Hafiz Gul Bahadur, allied to the Haqqani militant network.

Attacks by U.S. drones are deeply unpopular in Pakistan, after which there have been several deaths of civilians in the past, in addition to violating the sovereignty of that country.

However, the U.S. government considers the tribal belt of northwest Pakistan as the main hub of operations of the Taliban and the al Qaeda.
