Suspected US missile strike kills 4 in NW Pakistan

MIR ALI, Pakistan – A suspected US drone fired missiles at a house in northwestern Pakistan on Monday, killing four people in the 20th such attack this month — nearly double the previous monthly record, intelligence officials said.
The house targeted was located in Khushali, a village near Mir Ali, one of the major towns in North Waziristan, said the intelligence officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
The identities of the four people killed in the attack were not known, but the area is dominated by fighters led by the powerful militant commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur, said the officials.
