Stocktrek Images/Getty Images(ISLAMABAD) — At least 15 alleged militants were killed in two separate drone attacks in northwestern Pakistan Tuesday.

In the first attack, a pair of missiles targeted a vehicle in the Birmal district of South Waziristan.  The blast left eight militants — some of whom local sources say were foreign — dead.

Another two missiles were later fired at a pickup truck in South Waziristan, this time in the Sra Khawra region of Shawal.  That attack killed seven alleged militants.
