PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Two American missile attacks killed 15 people Friday in a region in northwest Pakistan that has seen few such strikes in the past, Pakistani officials said, in an apparent expansion of the CIA-led covert war inside the country.

The strikes took place in two villages in the Tirah Valley in the Khyber region, the Pakistani intelligence and government officials said. The same valley, which is known to be home to militants, was hit late Thursday in another US attack.

The two intelligence and two government officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
