PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Two US missile strikes about two hours apart killed at least 14 men near the Afghan border in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, two Pakistani intelligence officials said.

At least nine people were killed in the first strike when missiles destroyed a moving vehicle in the Spin Wam area of the North Waziristan tribal region, the officials said.

Two hours later drones fired more missiles at people who had gathered to retrieve the bodies, killing five, they said.

The identities and nationalities of the 14 slain men was not immediately known, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters on the record.
