A US drone aircraft fired two missiles in Pakistan’s North Waziristan region on the Afghan border today, killing 12 militants, intelligence officials said.

 The missile attack took place hours after the US special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke, landed in Islamabad for talks as part of the Pakistan-US strategic dialogue initiated in March.

 The drone targeted a suspected militant compound in Sokhel village, about 16 miles east of Miranshah, the main town of the region and known as a hotbed of Taliban and al Qaeda militants, the intelligence officials said.

 ”Twelve militants have been killed and three wounded in the attack on a compound which is linked to Taliban and al Qaeda,” one intelligence official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
