Drone Strike Kills Suspected Militants in Northwest Pakistan

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(ISLAMABAD) -- A two-missile attack on a compound in northwestern Pakistan killed four alleged militants, according to preliminary reports.

The identities of those killed in Tuesday's air strike were not immediately known.

This latest offensive comes two days after Pakistan, at the NATO summit in Chicago, renewed its demand to stop drone attacks.

Pakistan maintains that drone attacks are impacting its relations with the United States, whereas the U.S. says that drone attacks are the most effective tool against militants hiding in the tribal areas.
