PESHAWAR: A US-led drone strike in Tal area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Hangu district killed at least five persons and injured four others early on Thursday, DawnNews reported.

The drone fired missiles targeting a seminary in Tehsil Tal, according to the report.

Those wounded included students of the seminary whereas the identities of the deceased could not be ascertained.

Drones continued to hover above the area after the incident, locals reported.
