ISLAMABAD - American drones fired a flurry of missiles in a Pakistani tribal area bordering Afghanistan on Sunday, killing a total of 10 suspected militants, Pakistani officials said.
In the first strike, missiles fired from unmanned American spy planes hit two vehicles near the Afghan border, killing at least seven militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said. The strike came in the Mana area of North Waziristan, the officials added.
The officials say the area is dominated by Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a commander whose forces often strike U.S. troops in Afghanistan, but they did not know whether his men were the targets of Sunday's strike. A U.S. drone strike Saturday also in North Waziristan killed five Gul Bahadur allies.
