US drone attack in northwest Pakistan kills 6

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. drone attack in the South Waziristan tribal region in the northwest has killed at least six people and wounded another nine.

Two intelligence officials say Thursday's attack targeted a suspected militant hide-out in the stronghold of top Taliban commander Waliur Rehman. The officials said their information showed that Taliban fighters were removing the bodies from a destroyed compound.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to release the information.

It was not clear if the missile strike targeted any particular Taliban commander.
