MIR ALI, Pakistan — Suspected US missiles fired from an unmanned drone killed six militants Saturday in a Pakistani tribal region near the Afghan border, officials said.
Missiles struck two vehicles in Anghar Kala village near Miran Shah in North Waziristan — the second such attack since massive floods hit Pakistan in late July. The officials said some of the dead militants may be foreigners.
The tribal region is a haven for various Islamist groups. The main organization operating there is the Haqqani network, which focuses on attacking US and NATO troops across the border in Afghanistan.
