Pakistan: US missile strike kills 5 German citizens

ISLAMABAD — A US missile killed five German militants hiding in a house in northwest Pakistan on Monday, intelligence officials said.
The attack hit a house in North Waziristan. That region has been named as the source of a European terror plot that prompted American authorities to issue a travel advisory. One or more German citizens were reported to be linked to the plot.
The missile strike took place in the town of Mir Ali, a known hub for foreign militants with links to al-Qaida.
Two officers said the five victims were believed to be German citizens in the region for terrorist training.
A third said they were believed to be foreigners, but gave no details.
The officials spoke anonymously because their agency does not permit operatives to be named in the media.
