US missiles 'kill 12 in Pakistan'

Suspected US missiles have killed 12 people in a Pakistan tribal region along the Afghan border, intelligence officials said.

The missile strike in Issori village in North Waziristan was the first such attack since intense floods hit Pakistan in late July.

The US has tried to improve its public image in the country by sending flood aid. Missile strikes, however, are a tactic that has fed its unpopularity there.

The two intelligence officials said at least two people killed in the house hit by missiles were suspected militants.
