DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — Suspected US missiles struck a vehicle in a militant stronghold on Pakistan's side of the border with Afghanistan on Monday, killing six people, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The attack in the North Waziristan tribal region came in the final days of a year that has witnessed an unprecedented number of such drone-fired strikes on Pakistani soil, part of a ramped-up US campaign to take out al-Qaida and Taliban fighters seeking sanctuary outside Afghanistan.
