Suspected US missile strikes kill 3 in Pakistan

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani intelligence officials say two suspected U.S. missile strikes close to the Afghan border have killed three people.

The officials say the strikes took place Friday in two villages in North Waziristan.

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

The United States has launched a flurry of strikes against suspected al-Qaida and Taliban targets in North and South Waziristan in recent weeks.

A Pakistani military spokesman said he was not immediately able to comment on the suspected strikes.
