US missiles kill 6 in Pakistan's S. Waziristan

U.S. drone aircraft fired missiles and killed six suspected fighters in Pakistan's South Waziristan tribal region on Thursday, intelligence officials said.

Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud was killed in a similar attack in the same region on Aug. 5.

Islamabad publicly opposes suspected US strikes that violate its territorial sovereignty and deepen resentment among the populace. Since August 2008, around 52 such strikes have killed more than 521 people.
