WORLD BRIEFING / PAKISTAN

Suspected U.S. strike kills 4

October 23, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A suspected U.S. drone fired a missile into a Pakistani village early today, killing four tribesmen, residents said.

The strike targeted a village in the North Waziristan tribal region near the Afghan border where Jalaluddin Haqqani, a friend of Osama bin Laden, had established a religious school.

U.S. forces, frustrated over growing cross-border militant attacks from the Pakistani side, have carried out about a dozen missile strikes and a commando raid in Pakistani tribal areas since the start of September.
