U.S. Missile Strike In Pakistan Kills Seven Militants

October 28, 2010

Pakistani security officials say a U.S. strike on a house in Pakistan's tribal region near the Afghan border has killed at least seven militants.

Three Arabs and one Afghan national are among the reported dead.

The strike, by two missiles fired from an unmanned aircraft, targeted a compound in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan district, a known bastion of Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters involved in cross-border raids in Afghanistan.
