Intelligence officials, on condition of secrecy, told that two US missiles hit a house near Wana in South Waziristan on Tuesday.
In the hunt of Taliban and al Qaeda militants, America has been striking northwest Pakistan using missiles and drones since 2008.
Today’s missile strike comes amidst rising tensions between Pakistan and U.S. after Adm. Mike Mullen claimed that ISI (Inter Services Intelligence – Pakistan’s top spy agency) has been supporting those militants who carried out attacks against American targets in Afghanistan.
Islamabad has already denied the charges.
