ISLAMABAD, (Reuters) – A suspected U.S. drone aircraft fired a missile at a house in the militancy-plagued Pakistani region of North Waziristan on Saturday, killing two people, security agency officials said. “A missile was fired at a house owned by one Taj Mohammad, and we have reports of two men killed,” said an intelligence agency official.

Another security agent and a Taliban militant confirmed the strike and the death toll at the house in the village of Chashma, 2 km (1 mile) north of the region’s main town of Miranshah.
