US airstrike kills 12 in Pakistan
The missiles have killed more than 60 people in 13 strikes since September 2 in the Pakistani region of North Waziristan, according to a tally based on Pakistani intelligence officials' reports.
US and Pakistani intelligence officials said most of this month's strikes have targeted the forces of Jalaluddin and Sirajuddin Haqqani, a former anti-Soviet commander and his son who are now battling American forces in eastern Afghanistan.
The raids targeting the group in Afghanistan are led mainly by the Joint Special Operations Command. Such raids across Afghanistan are now more frequent than at any previous time in the nearly nine-year war, with some 4,000 recorded between May and August as special operations numbers were boosted by troops arriving from Iraq.
