ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Five missiles fired from an American pilotless drone aircraft Monday hit a large compound in North Waziristan belonging to one of Pakistan’s most prominent Taliban leaders, a Pakistani intelligence official and a local resident said.
The missile attack at about 10:20 a.m. killed nine people, including two children, and injured up to 18, according to the account from the intelligence official. A spokesman for the Pakistani Army, Maj. Murad Khan, said the military knew of explosions near the compound, and was investigating.
