At Least 12 Dead in Pakistan Missile Strike

ISLAMABAD (AP) - Intelligence officials say a suspected US drone
missile strike has killed at least 12 alleged militants in
northwest Pakistan.

The officials say Wednesday's attack targeted a militant
hide-out in a remote area of Orakzai tribal region near the Afghan
border.

They say the two missiles that struck the compound also wounded
several suspected militants.

They say the identities of the people who were killed and
injured were not clear because the Taliban surrounded the area
shortly after the attack.

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