The drone targeted some militants who were walking in an agricultural field in Shin Warsak area of South Waziristan Agency yesterday.

The region is located close to the Afghan border.

Security officials were quoted by TV channels as saying that there were no casualties or damage on the ground.

There have been virtually no drone attacks in Pakistan's northwest without any casualties.

The region where today's strike was carried out is a stronghold of pro-government Taliban commander Mullah Nazir, who sustained minor injuries in a suicide attack yesterday that killed seven persons.
