US missile attack kills 5 people in NW Pakistan

PARACHINAR, Pakistan — A US drone attack killed five people in northwest Pakistan on Monday, local intelligence officials said, the latest in a barrage of such strikes against al-Qaida and Taliban militants who have long sought sanctuary in the region.
The missile or missiles struck a house in North Waziristan, the area that has seen the overwhelming majority of attacks over the last two months, said the officials, who did not give their names because the agency they work for does not allow its operatives to be identified.
The identities of those killed was not immediately known.
