PESHAWAR: A US missile strike on a militant compound in Pakistan's tribal district on the Afghan border killed at least 12 people on Saturday, local security officials said.

The strike took place in the village of Essori, 20 kilometres (13 miles) east of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal district, which is known as a hub of Taliban and Al-Qaeda linked militants.

“One missile fired from a US drone struck a militant compound in the village killing at least twelve rebels,” a senior Pakistani security official in the area told AFP on condition of anonymity.

He said that a local tribesman owned the compound and that the strike occurred during special Ramadan prayers, called Taraweehi.
