A U.S. missile slammed into a suspected Taliban camp in a lawless Pakistani tribal region, intelligence officials and Taliban commanders said, killing as many as 14 people, nearly a week after a similar strike reportedly took out the group's leader.

The missile hit a compound in Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mahsud's stronghold, South Waziristan, near the Afghan border, intelligence officials said.
