 US missiles kill five in North Waziristan

 Updated at: 1627 PST,  Friday, January 07, 2011
 MIRANSHAH: A barrage of US missiles killed up to five suspected militants in North Waziristan tribal district on Friday, destroying a vehicle used by fighters, security officials said.

They said strikes killed five suspected rebels in Ghar Laley village, 35 kilometres (22 miles) west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, and close to the Afghan border.

"US drones fired four missiles, targeting a vehicle and a house," a local security official said.

"So far five bodies have been recovered," he said. "Taliban have surrounded the area and there are fears the final toll may go up," he said.

"The missiles targeted militants fleeing on a motorbike," said another security official, putting the death toll at two.

"The area is considered a stronghold of militants, including foreign Al-Qaeda fighters," he said.
