Five killed in suspected US missile strike
Sunday 09 May 2010
Pakistan intelligence officials said suspected US missiles killed five people in the country's northwest in an area where militants operate.
The missiles struck in North Waziristan, a tribal region near the Afghan border.
The suspect in the recent failed car bombing in New York's Times Square claimed he visited a militant camp in Waziristan.
Two Pakistani intelligence officials said the two missiles hit the house of local tribesman Awal Gul in Enzer Kasa village of the Datta Khel area.
Residents pulled five bodies from the rubble and the death toll could rise.
