Suspected Islamic militants fired rockets at a military base in a tribal region in northwestern Pakistan early Sunday, but no one was hurt, officials said. Three rockets fired in the pre-dawn attack slammed into a field inside the base in Wana, the main town in South Waziristan tribal region, a government official and an area intelligence agent said. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they lacked authority to make media comments. Troops retaliated with small weapons fire in the direction from which the rockets were launched. It was unknown whether the assailants suffered any casualties, the intelligence official said.
