    It is unclear who fired the missile. Previous attacks across the Afghanistan border have been attributed to US-led coalition forces.
     
    The Pakistani government rarely admits to US military action in the nation, as president Pervez Musharraf has continually publicly rejected US offers for joint operations in the territory.
     
    A US missile attack killed several fighters in January 2006 and in December 2005 Hamza Rabia, an alleged al-Qaeda explosives expert, was killed by a strike in North Waziristan
     
    Local residents said the latter attack was a missile blast, but the military said Rabia died due to one of his own bombs exploding.
