Two Suspected U.S. Strikes Kill At Least 8 In Pakistan

Two suspected U.S. missile strikes targeting the same building reportedly killed at least eight people in North Waziristan, a region near Afghanistan.

Pakistani intelligence officials said that the first strike hit a house in the Ghulam Khan area, killing six people.

The officials did not know the identities of those killed but said they were militants.

Three hours later, as people went to the site to pick up the bodies, more missiles hit the same spot.

The intelligence officials said civilians may have been among those killed in the second strike.
