"On the second consecutive day on Friday the US drones targeted three suspected bases of alleged militants in the inaccessible Tirah valley, tehsil Bara of Khyber Agency, killing at least 60 suspected militants including two militant commanders and leaving more than a dozen injured, official sources said. ... This was the first drone attack after President Barack Obama announced the review of Afghan war on Thursday last. There had been more than 100 drone attacks in 2010, over double than last year’s total." (12/19/10)
