'US missiles' hit Pakistan target

At least four killed in South Waziristan in strike by suspected US drone.

    Two missiles fired on Thursday from a suspected US drone killed three alleged foreign fighters.

    The latest round of missile fire came even as Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the Pakistani foreign minister, urged the US to stop drone attacks inside Pakistan's territory.

    But the US is keeping up with its aerial assault on Pakistan's tribal border region, accusing local tribals of supporting the Taliban in neighbouring Afghanistan.

    George Bush, the US president, has indicated that drone attacks on targets inside the Pakistani tribal areas would continue despite Islamabad's protests.
