12 Killed in Pakistan Drone Strike

A U.S. unmanned drone reportedly killed 10 suspected militants at a funeral Sunday for two men killed by a strike the day before. Intelligence officials in Pakistan say the drone fired four missiles in Mana Ragzhai, a village near the border with Afghanistan. The target was a gathering of men to honor a militant commander. It was the sixth U.S. drone strike in two weeks and the second of the weekend. Pakistanis have been angered by U.S. drone strikes in the country, many of them aimed against targets in the tribal areas of Waziristan, where al Qaeda and the Taliban are thought to operate with their affiliates.
