PAKISTAN (WKOW) -- Pakistani intelligence officials say a U.S. drone attack hit a militant hideout near the Afghan border of Pakistan early Friday morning.
It killed 6 suspected militants who have not yet been named. Officials are calling the targeted area a "sprawling compound."
The U.S. drone program has caused major tension between Pakistan and the U.S., but Washington says it needs to use unmanned aircrafts because Pakistan refuses to engage fighters militarily.
