US bombs Pakistan again; Taliban down drone in Afghanistan?

A missile from a presumed US drone killed 13 people and wounded seven others when it struck a house in Haider Khel village in the Mir Ali area of Pakistan’s North Waziristan. (AlJazeera, June 19) Meanwhile in Afghanistan’s Herat province, a NATO drone crashed, with Taliban militants claiming to have shot it down in an Internet statement. NATO authorities deny it was shot down. The US-led forces appear to have increased drone operations in the region, and the US alone is said to have over 6,000 drones in Afghanistan.
