MIR ALI, Pakistan (AP) - Intelligence officials say suspected U.S. missiles have killed 12 people in a Pakistan tribal region along the Afghan border.
Saturday's missile strike in Issori village in North Waziristan was the first such attack since intense floods hit Pakistan in late July.
The U.S. has tried to improve its public image in Pakistan by sending flood aid. Missile strikes, however, are a tactic that has fed its unpopularity here.
The two intelligence officials who confirmed the airstrike spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. They said at least two killed in the house hit by missiles were suspected militants.
