Suspected US missile kills at least four in Pakistan

Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike by a drone aircraft has killed at least four people near the Afghan border.

The officials say some people have also been wounded in Saturday's attack in the South Waziristan tribal region.


Pakistan is a key ally of the United States in its fight against terrorism, but it has opposed missile strikes in the country's tribal regions where Taliban and al-Qaida insurgents are believed to be operating.

Hearkening back to a discussion in the presidential debates.

Could be nothing; could be a bit of an issue.
