DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — Suspected US missiles struck a house in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing five people in the latest American strike targeting militant leaders, intelligence officials said.

The strikes were in North Waziristan, a tribal region that has long been a haven for Taliban- and al-Qaida-linked militant networks battling American and NATO forces across the border in Afghanistan. The suspect in the recent failed car bombing in New York's Times Square has claimed he trained in a militant camp somewhere in Waziristan.Two Pakistani intelligence officials said the two missiles hit the house of local tribesman Awal Gul in Enzer Kasa village of the Datta Khel area. Residents pulled five bodies from the rubble and the death toll could rise. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.



It was not immediately clear whether Gul had any ties to militant groups.
