MIR ALI, Pakistan — A suspected US missile strike targeting a home and a speeding vehicle near the Afghan border killed 15 alleged militants early Tuesday, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The attack happened in the Bangi Dar village of North Waziristan, a tribal region that is a base for insurgents responsible for many of the attacks on US and NATO forces just across the border in Afghanistan.

At least four missiles were fired before dawn Tuesday, two at the mud-brick house and two at the vehicle, two Pakistani intelligence officials said. Four of the slain were in the vehicle while at least 11 died in the flattened home.
