A pre-dawn US missile strike Friday killed at least 13 people in a border tribal area of northwest Pakistan known as a Taliban hideout, officials said.

A missile hit a house near Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, at 3:50 am (2150 GMT Thursday), a Pakistani security official told AFP.

“So far 13 bodies have been recovered,” said the official, who had earlier put the death toll at nine.
