Thursday March 12nd, 2009 / 19h00

 PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP)–A suspected U.S. missile strike struck a Taliban den in northwest Pakistan on Thursday, killing at least seven militants, including suspected Al-Qaeda operatives, security officials said.
“The strike was in the Kurram belt. It destroyed a suspected den used by Taliban militants, killing at least seven militants, including foreigners,” a senior security official said, adopting a term used to mean Al-Qaeda members.
A second senior security official confirmed the strike and the same details, also speaking on condition of anonymity.
The U.S. military as a rule doesn’t confirm drone attacks, but it and the Central Intelligence Agency operating in Afghanistan are the only forces that deploy drones in the region.
