DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) -- Intelligence officials say suspected US missiles have hit two houses in northwest Pakistan, killing 27 people.

Two suspected missiles hit a house in North Waziristan on Friday, killing 20 people, the officials said.

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

A second house in northwest Pakistan was hit late Friday, killing seven including suspected foreign militants. That strike took place in Kari Kot in South Waziristan.
