Missile Strikes Kill Suspected Militants in Pakistan

American troops in Pakistan reportedly killed at least six people yesterday in North Waziristan. Military officials have identified all six as suspected militants.

Although Pakistani troops have been battling the Taliban in South Waziristan, U.S. officials have urged Pakistan to expand its operations to North Waziristan, near the Afghan border. However, Pakistan believes it will take up to a year to establish a strong military presence in the region. As a result, NATO and American forces have taken over the security responsibilities for much of North Waziristan.
