ISLAMABAD, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The United States pilotless drone aircraft Friday struck a house in Pakistan's North Waziristan region and killed at least 10 people, local media reported.

The aircraft fired two missiles at a house at Datta Khel area near the Afghan border, killing four people at the scene. Several others were critical injured and six others died later of wounds, the private Geo TV reported.

It is the second U.S. strike in North Waziristan region, the stronghold of Taliban militants, in two days.

On Thursday U.S. drone aircraft targeted a compound of suspected militants in Mir Ali, a main town in North Waziristan, and killed at least three people.

The U.S. has intensified drone strike in North Waziristan in recent months despite outcry against the attacks by international rights groups and Pakistan.
