US To Give Pak 85 Mini-Drones

Islamabad   The United States will provide Pakistan with 85 small ‘Raven’ drone aircraft, a U.S. military official said on Thursday.

This is supposed to be a key step to meeting Islamabad's calls for access to U.S. drone technology.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, declined to disclose the cost or model of the non-lethal, short-range aircraft, which are manufactured by the U.S.-based AeroVironment Inc.

Meanwhile, in another fresh Drone attack on early Friday morning, a US Drone killed at least seven people after it fired five missiles at a compound housing Taliban militants in Spinwam, 40 km northeast of Miranshah in North Waziristan.
