At least 20 people were killed in a missile strike near the Afghan border on Sunday, state-run Pakistan Television said. The strike destroyed the house of a suspected terror chief, according to a local tribesman. Seven missiles were fired in the strike in the tribal area of South Waziristan, the television report said. The report did not indicate where the missiles came from, but US-led coalition forces based in neighboring Afghanistan have launched attacks inside the Pakistani border in the past.
