in the village of Mohammad Khel, west of Miran Shah, North Waziristan, Pakistan. A U.S. drone fired two missiles at a home in Pakistani territory with utter impunity. At daybreak, villagers combed the wreckage of the home of two brothers (Daud Jan and Abdul Rehman), looking for survivors and bodies to be buried. Villagers recounted to Reuters correspondent, Haji Mujtaba, what were the results: “we found body parts scattered all over the place in the ruins, someone’s hand, someone’s leg,” said a villager, Bakht Ali.
