ISLAMABAD, Dec 21 (KUNA) - At least six suspected militants were killed and
two were wounded in a US missile strike on Friday in Pakistan's troubled
Waziristan tribal region, said officials.
An unmanned US aircraft fired two missiles at a house in Khaso Khel area of
North Waziristan tribal agency, security officials told KUNA.
They said the strike flattened the house and killed at least six suspected
militants. About two others were also wounded. Some unconfirmed reports
suggested that among those killed were foreigners of Uzbek origin.
The strike took place hours after a similar aircraft crashed in the
neighbouring South Waziristan agency. (end)
