Officials: Alleged US missile kills 3 in Pakistan

PARACHINAR, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistani soldiers have destroyed a house belonging to the country's Taliban chief.

They've been in a battle for his hometown today, the fifth day of a major offensive on an insurgent sanctuary close to the Afghan border.

Intelligence officials say Pakistani soldiers appear to be gaining ground.

Meantime, intelligence officials said suspected U.S. missiles killed three alleged militants in a neighboring region.

The region lies adjacent to South Waziristan, an al-Qaida and Taliban stronghold that is the target of the offensive by Pakistani army soldiers.
