Baku-APA. A second US drone attack in less than a day has killed at least 10 people and wounded several others in northwest Pakistan, APA reports quoting presstv.ir website.

Officials say an American unmanned plane fired two missiles at a house in North Waziristan.

Earlier, another unmanned aircraft fired over a dozen missiles into a village killing 14 people.

The issue of civilian casualties has strained relations between Islamabad and Washington. Pakistan has repeatedly objected to the attacks, saying they violate its sovereignty.

Since August 2008, such strikes have killed nearly a thousand people, many of them civilians.
