U.S. drone strike in Pakistan kills 10 near Afghan border

Ten suspected militants were killed Wednesday when a U.S. drone fired two missiles at an insurgent hideout in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, three security officials said.

The early morning attack took place 10 kilometers east of Miranshah, the main town of North Waziristan, according to the officials, who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak to the news media on the matter.

The attack Wednesday morning was the fourth U.S. drone strike on Pakistani soil this year, all of them targeting locations in North Waziristan.

    NICE!! "suspected militants." I like it.... the doling out of justice by the US military and intelligence agencies. When does that start here in the states??? The police and other "civilian" agencies are requesting usage of airspace for "drone" traffic. I can't wait.....FILM AT 11.
