U.S. Missile Attacks Kill Nine In Pakistan

Nine suspected militants are reported to have been killed in two U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan.

Pakistani security officials say the unmanned aircraft targeted two villages near Mir Ali in North Waziristan, a tribal region along the Afghan border.

The United States has sharply escalated its use of drone missile strikes targeting militants in Pakistan's border region in the last two months.

Pakistan officially opposes the program.
