Islamabad – A suspected US missile strike killed at least 14 people in Pakistan’s troubled north-western region bordering Afghanistan on Saturday, media reports said. The attacked targeted a Taliban hideout in the Bajaur tribal district, where the Pakistani military claimed victory over the militants early this year after months of fighting.

Private Duniya News television channel said 14 people were killed in the assault. Three foreign militants were among the dead.

Pakistan officially criticizes US drone attacks inside its territory, arguing they violate the country’s sovereignty and spread anti-American sentiments.

Some US aerial raids have successfully taken out high-profile Taliban and al-Qaeda figures.

In early August, a similar assault in South Waziristan, another tribal district on the Afghan border, killed Pakistan Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud.
