CIA Resumes Drone Strikes In Pakistan

(Undated) -- At least 16 suspected militants are dead in the first U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan this year. The attack came Wednesday night, just three days after a deadly attack on the airport in Karachi. Two drones hit a vehicle and a compound in the North Waziristan region overnight. U.S. intelligence officials say the strike destroyed a pickup truck carrying six militants and loaded with explosives.
The drone operations, run by the CIA, were suspended in December so the Pakistani government could open negotiations with militants. That restraint ended after the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan claimed responsibility earlier Wednesday for the airport attack that killed 39 people.
