Suspected US strike kills 6 in Pakistan

Two Pakistani intelligence officials said on Thursday that a suspected US missile strike has killed six people close to the Afghan border. The officials said that the identities of those killed in the attack late Thursday was not immediately known. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The United States is suspected of carrying out more than 30 missile strikes against militant targets on the Pakistan side of the Afghan border since August.
