The US conducted a drone strike on second consecutive day firing two missiles targeting a house in Paktia province of Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

There have been no reports of causalities. The strike has been carried out in the province where Taliban stormed a police training center in Gardez on Tuesday, Daily Pakistan reported Tuesday.

On Monday, six missiles strikes were carried out by the US drone in the same area killing at least 20 people and injuring 10.

Following the strike, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif expressed concerns over the attack fearing that such strikes will interrupt peace talks with Taliban. Last year, the negotiation process was halted by the Taliban after their leader Mullah Akhtan killed in a drone strike by the US.
