Earlier, last month, a suspected United States drone strike targeted a hideout of the Haqqani militant network in the same area, killing four people.

Officials in Pakistan's Kurram tribal region say a commander of the Afghan Haqqani Network, a militant group that is fighting against Afghan government and US -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan, has been killed in a suspected USA drone strike. The group is also blamed for several deadly attacks against Indian interests in Afghanistan, including the 2008 bombing of the Indian mission in Kabul that killed 58 people.

The Pakistani official said it was not immediately clear whether the missile struck on the Afghan or Pakistani side of the border.
