Suspected U.S. missiles strikes kill 11 in Pakistan


DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — Intelligence officials say four suspected U.S. missiles strikes have killed 11 militants in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghan border.

The officials say the strikes occurred Wednesday in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan tribal region.

The first attack targeted a house in Lataka village, killing four militants.

Minutes later, a drone attacked a vehicle nearby, killing two foreign militants.

Another attack 15 minutes later against a second vehicle killed three militants.

The final attack occurred a half-hour later and targeted militants collecting bodies from the house destroyed in the first strike. The attack killed two militants.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media.
