A suspected U.S. missile strike killed three Taliban militants in restive northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, intelligence officials said, the latest attack in the region plagued by violence in recent days.
An unmanned U.S. drone targeted a Taliban compound in the South Waziristan tribal region and killed the insurgents, the two intelligence officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.
The missile attack occurred in Sararogha village, the base of former Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud, who was killed in an Aug. 5 strike by an American drone.
