Suspected US missiles hit Pakistan

Suspected US missiles have hit a house in a Pakistani tribal area, killing 10 alleged militants, intelligence officials have said.

The two officials said the missiles from an unmanned plane destroyed the home in the northern part of Shawal village, which is dominated by the Haqqani and Hafiz Gul Bahadur networks of militants fighting US troops across the border in Afghanistan.

The officials said Taliban militants dug 10 bodies from the rubble of the house destroyed early on Monday in the 10th airstrike in the area this month.
