Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

PESHAWAR: A sus­pected US drone strike killed three peo­ple in the tribal area of Pak­istan near the Afghanistan bor­der yes­ter­day, a se­nior re­gional of­fi­cial said, in what Afghan Tal­iban sources say was an at­tack tar­get­ing a Haqqani net­work mil­i­tant.

If con­firmed, it would be the first US drone strike in­side Pak­istan since Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump out­lined a new Afghanistan strat­egy and pushed Is­lam­abad to take greater ac­tion against Pak­istan-based Haqqani mil­i­tants who are al­lied to the Afghan Tal­iban. – Reuters
