US missiles kill 3 suspected militants in Pakistan

Posted:

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani intelligence officials say a U.S. drone fired two missiles at a house in northwest Pakistan, killing three suspected militants.

The officials say the attack occurred before dawn Thursday in the main bazaar in Miran Shah, the biggest town in the North Waziristan tribal area. Three suspected militants were also wounded. The exact identities of the dead and wounded were not known.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

The strike was the second in as many days in North Waziristan.

The U.S. does not speak publicly about individual strikes because of the covert nature of the CIA-run drone program.
