At least two people were killed Thursday when a missile from an unmanned US aircraft slammed into a suspected militant hideout in northwest tribal belt, security officials said. The attack struck a house in Dattakhel village, some 30 kilometres (18 miles) west of Miranshah, the main town of the restive North Waziristan tribal district bordering Afghanistan, officials said. "Two missiles hit a house in Dattakhel area -- two militants were killed," an intelligence official told AFP. Another security official also confirmed the attack and the toll, adding that the suspected militants were killed as they parked a car outside a house.
