Suspected US Missile Strike Kills 7 in NW Pakistan

MIR ALI, Pakistan (AP) -Monday's attack struck the Datta Khel region of North Waziristan.

The officials provided no further details of the strike, and did
not give their names because their agency does not allow them to.

The United States has stepped up missile attacks on al-Qaida and
Taliban targets inside northwest Pakistan over the last two months.

There have been 17 strikes this month, according to an Associated
Press count.

Washington does not acknowledge the attacks or say who it is
targeting or killing.

Critics say innocents are often killed in the attacks, hurting
Pakistan's efforts to win over tribesmen in its campaign against
militants.
