Officials: Suspected US drones kill 12 in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (AP) - Intelligence officials say two suspected U.S. drone missile strikes have killed at least 12 people in Pakistan's volatile northwest near the Afghan border.

The officials say a suspected drone fired two missiles at a house in the Datta Khel region of North Waziristan in the first attack Wednesday, killing seven people.

The officials say a second strike occurred as locals were retrieving bodies from the rubble of the house, killing five people. The identities of those killed in the attacks were unknown.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
