US missile strike kills eight militants

PAKISTAN: A US drone aircraft fired two missiles into an al Qaeda and Taliban hideout in northwest Pakistan on the Afghan border on Sunday, killing eight militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The identity of the militants killed in the Lowari Mandi area of the North Waziristan tribal region was not known.

The United States has stepped up attempts to kill leading militants in North Waziristan since a suicide bombing at a fortified U.S. base across the border in the Afghan province of Khost killed seven CIA employees last December. "Fire is still raging in the targeted compound," resident Abdul Akbar said by telephone. Authorities said they had found the bodies of three tribesmen believed to have been shot dead by militants on suspicion of spying for the United States. .
