Drone Strike Kills 20 in Pakistan

Twenty Islamic militants died in a U.S. drone strilke on Wednesday, according to Pakistani intelligence officials. The strike targeted a house in North Waziristan, where Afghan and Pakistani members of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network had gathered. The U.S. ordinarily neither confirms nor denies drone strikes, which are generally a source of tension between the U.S. and Pakistan.
