US missiles kill 10 militants in Pakistan

Excellent , it has been awhile !

MIRANSHAH, Pakistan — US missiles destroyed a compound used by Islamist fighters in Pakistan's tribal belt on Thursday, killing at least 10 militants in the first such attack for two weeks, officials said.

A US drone fired at least two missiles into the compound in the village of Sheerani Mada Khel in the district of North Waziristan, a Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked stronghold heavily targeted in a covert US drone war this year.

"At least 10 militants were killed," a senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

"Most of the dead militants are said to be foreigners," he added, but said that their nationalities were not yet known.
