Suspected drone strike kills 5 suspected militants

A suspected U.S. drone strike killed five suspected militants in Pakistan's tribal region on Monday, intelligence officials tell CNN.

Two intelligence officials say two missiles were fired on the vehicle of suspected militants in village Khar Qamar of North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

The intelligence officials asked not to be named because they were not authorised to speak to the media.

    I'm kind of wondering about how long it will be before police drones flying over Los Angeles will shoot at police officers suspected of beating people to death.

      You would have the police shot that were SUSPECTED of wrong doing? Please get all the facts before you jump to killimg what very well could be innocent cops. I will help youout, if you get your news from CNN or Time, then you do not have all the facts.
