Dozen militants killed in suspected US strike in Pakistan: security official

At least a dozen militants including foreign fighters were killed Wednesday in a suspected US missile strike on two houses in northwestern Pakistan. The attack came on the same day that NATO urged Pakistan to tighten security on its border with Afghanistan, following a surge in attacks on coalition troops in Eastern Afghanistan. Pakistan’s chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas told AFP that the army was unaware of any missile strike in the region.
