US Missile Strike Kills 4 in Pakistan


Pakistan security officials say a U.S. missile strike has killed four suspected militants in the country's northwestern region, along the Afghan border.

Officials say three missiles hit a vehicle carrying the militants in the Datta Khel village in the North Waziristan tribal district.

The U.S. has launched nearly 20 missile strikes against Taliban and al-Qaida-linked militant strongholds in Pakistan's northwestern tribal region this month.

Pakistani officials publicly condemn the drone strikes, saying they violate the country's territorial sovereignty. U.S. officials do not publicly comment on the strikes, which Pakistan generally says are carried out by drones.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
