Suspected US missile strike reported in Pakistan

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani intelligence officials are reporting a suspected U.S. missile strike on a militant stronghold near the Afghan border.

Two intelligence officials said informants told them that several missiles hit a house in the South Waziristan region on Wednesday evening. They had no immediate word on any casualties.

They said an unmanned drone of the type used by U.S. forces in Afghanistan was heard in the area shortly before the attack.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak openly to the media.

A spokesman for the Pakistan army said it was looking into reports about the incident.
