US President Barack Obama has confirmed that unmanned drones have regularly struck Pakistan's tribal areas in his government's efforts to dismantle what it alleges are al-Qaeda sanctuaries in the region.

Obama's rare public acknowledgement of the US drone programme in Pakistan came on Monday during an hour-long online video chat with users of the Google+ social network.
