U.S. airstrike in Pakistani village, sources say
Two Pakistani military sources told CNN that U.S. military forces launched airstrikes on a Pakistani village early Wednesday.
The reported strikes occurred about 1 a.m. in a village in North Waziristan, a region in northwest Pakistan near the Afghanistan border.
The Pakistani military sources said that U.S. military launched three missiles that struck at least one home. The sources had no information on casualties or injuries.
This is a controversial issue since President Bush approved U.S. incursions in Pakistan without Islamabad approval in July.
Reuters reported, "A U.S. pilotless drone fired two missiles at a house in northwest Pakistan killing five people, Pakistani intelligence agency officials said Wednesday."
Two intelligence agency officials told Reuters that the missiles were fired at a house near the town of Mir Ali in North Waziristan, an area known to be a sanctuary Pakistani Taliban and foreign militants near the Afghan border.
"We have reports of five dead including foreign militants," said one of the officers, reported Reuters.
