Seven missiles were fired in the strike in the tribal area of South Waziristan, the television report said.

The report did not indicate where the missiles came from, but U.S.-led occupation forces based in neighboring Afghanistan have launched attacks inside the Pakistani border in the past.

The missiles were fired by an unmanned drone, local tribesman, Rahim Khan said.

At least two hit and destroyed the home of a local leader who goes by the single name Noorullah, Khan said.
