The number killed in a suspected US missile strike in northwest Pakistan rose to 24 on Friday, most of them Taliban militants, according to local officials.

Two missiles fired by an unmanned drone destroyed a Taliban training camp in Kurram, officials said, one of seven semi-autonomous regions near Pakistan’s porous border with Afghanistan, where US troops are battling Taliban fighters.

“We have handed over 24 bodies after cleaning and wrapping them in cloth,” Saidur Rehman, an official of the local charity Al-Khidmat Foundation, told AFP.

A senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity that 50 others, mostly militants, were injured and the dead included “foreigners” — a reference to Al-Qaeda militants.

No high-value targets were believed to have died, the official added.
