Officials: Suspected US drones kill 12 in Pakistan

• AP
 Two suspected U.S. drone missile strikes killed at least 12 people Wednesday in an area of Pakistan’s volatile northwest teeming with militants suspected in a recent suicide attack that killed seven CIA employees in Afghanistan, intelligence officials said.

The lawless North Waziristan tribal area hit Wednesday is home to several militant groups that stage cross-border attacks against coalition troops, including the al-Qaida-linked Haqqani network. Counting the latest strikes, suspected U.S. drones have attacked North Waziristan four times since the CIA bombing a week ago, killing at least 20 people.
