According to intelligence sources, Chinese M-11 missiles showed up in Pakistan within the last two weeks. One source put the number of the missiles at about two dozen.

The Bush administration said it was planning to let Pakistan buy advanced Boeing Harpoon anti-ship missiles and related equipment valued at up to $370 million. Of the total "Block II" Harpoon missiles, 50 would be for launch from submarines, 50 from surface ships and 30 by air, the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a notice to Congress, required by law. The notice does not mean a sale has been concluded, and Congress could intervene.

A U.S. drone aircraft fired missiles into Pakistan's North Waziristan region on Tuesday, killing three militants, the latest such strike on a major al Qaeda and Taliban sanctuary, officials and residents said. The attack targeted a militant compound in the Datta Kheil area, about 40 km (25 miles) west of North Waziristan's main town of Miranshah. "Smoke is rising from the burning compound," Javed Iqbal, a resident of Datta Kheil, told Reuters by telephone. U.S. officials say the pilotless drones are one of the most effective weapons against militants.
