Pakistan: US Drone Strike Kills 8


Pakistan security officials say a U.S. drone strike has killed at least eight suspected insurgents.

Authorities say missiles hit a compound Saturday in the Shawal area of the North Waziristan tribal district, along the Afghan border.

Pakistan has repeatedly called for an end to U.S. drone strikes on suspected Taliban sanctuaries in Pakistani territory. Pakistan considers the drone strikes a violation of sovereignty that causes unacceptable civilian casualties.

The U.S. has given no indication it intends to halt the drone campaign.
