At least 12 people were killed in a missile strike apparently carried out by a US drone in Pakistan’s Tribal Areas. The raid is believed to have killed neo-Taliban fighters, five of them foreigners, Pakistani officials said. The attack targeted a house in a village near the border between North and South Waziristan, in a stronghold of local militant commander Baitullah Mehsud. The attack came a day after Pakistan’s foreign ministry accused the US of violating international law by launching missile attacks on the region. (AlJazeera, Nov. 13)
