Islamabad: At least four suspected
militants were killed as a US drone fired missiles into a
village in northwest Pakistan`s Waziristan tribal region, the

The US pilotless aircraft fired three missiles at a
village near Mirali, a main town in North Waziristan.
Reports said that missiles struck house of a local
tribal man. There was no immediate report on the identity of

Taliban militants plan attacks on the US-led foreign troops
across the border into Afghanistan.

militants in Issori village in North Waziristan.
