MIR ALI, Pakistan — Suspected U.S. drones fired missiles Sunday at a house and car in a militant-dominated tribal region near the Afghan border, killing at least four people, officials said.
The attack occurred in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, two intelligence officials said.
The drones fired three missiles, they added, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
The identities of those killed were not known, though the region is dominated by the Taliban’s Haqqani network, which is blamed for launching attacks across the border against American and NATO forces in Afghanistan.
Separately, the bullet-riddled bodies of four Pakistani tribesmen, killed for allegedly spying for the United States, were found Sunday elsewhere in North Waziristan, witnesses and officials said. Violence also flared in other tribal areas Sunday, with helicopter gunships pounding Taliban hide-outs in the Kurram and Upper Orakzai tribal regions, killing 28 militants, officials said.
