Intelligence officials say a suspected US drone missile strike has killed at least 12 alleged militants in northwest Pakistan. The officials say Wednesday's attack targeted a militant hide-out in a remote area of Orakzai tribal region near the Afghan border. They say the two missiles that struck the compound also wounded several suspected militants. They say the identities of the people who were killed and injured were not clear because the Taliban surrounded the area shortly after the attack. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
