US Missiles Kill 8 Kill in Northwest Pakistan
Pakistani intelligence officials say a U.S. missile strike has killed eight alleged militants in northwest Pakistan.
The officials say four missiles struck a convoy of militants traveling by car and on foot near the town of Ghulam Khan in the North Waziristan tribal area along the Afghanistan border.
Ghulam Khan is known to be dominated by fighters from a militant group headed by Maulvi Gul Bahadur.
The two intelligence officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief the media.
