Excellent , Nine more Terrorist Scumbags Dispatched by Hellfire Missiles !

(Reuters) - A U.S. drone aircraft fired two missiles into a Taliban compound in Pakistan's North Waziristan region on the Afghan border on Sunday, killing nine militants, Pakistani security official said.

Separately, Pakistani army helicopter gunships killed 18 militants in raids in the northwestern region of Orakzai, a government official said.

The latest drone missile strike on militants was the second in northwest Pakistan since a failed bid to set off a car bomb in New York's Time Square last weekend.

The attack was in Dattakhel village, about 60 km (40 miles) west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, a hotbed for al Qaeda and Taliban militants on the Afghan border.

"The compound has been destroyed completely. It's been cordoned off by Taliban," said an intelligence agency official in the region, who declined to be identified.

A military official said nine militants had been killed. There was no information about the identity of those killed, they said.
