Pakistani officials said on Saturday that a suspected US missile attack killed at least four people in a stronghold of the Taliban and al-Qaida near the Afghan border. Three intelligence officials told The Associated Press that several missiles hit a religious school and a vehicle on Saturday near Mir Ali, a town in the North Waziristan region. The officials said agents in the area reported that militants had recovered four bodies from the scene and were searching in the rubble for more. The identities of the victims was not immediately known. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak openly to the media.
