DERA ISMAIL KHAN — Unmanned US aircraft fired missiles at houses in two different parts of northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least 12 militants in attacks that occurred hours apart, intelligence officials said.

The first strike Sunday took place around midday when aircraft fired four missiles at a house in Shaktoi, a village along the border of North and South Waziristan, killing five suspected militants, intelligence officials said. The attack, which actually occurred in South Waziristan, also wounded four suspected militants, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Later Sunday, two missiles hit a house in Taipi village near Miran Shah, the main town in North Waziristan, killing seven suspected militants, said the officials.
