have been fired from Afghanistan into Pakistan, killing at least eight people in a suspected hideout for Islamic extremists.

The suspected Islamic extremists were killed when two missiles hit a house in Pakistan’s tribal area in the South Waziristan town of Wana.

Pakistan security officials say the town is a known haven for Taliban and Al Qaeda rebels and confirmed the missiles came from Afghanistan.

Residents say the owner of the house was pulled from the rubble and many people fled because planes were flying overhead.

The missile strike against the suspected militants in Pakistan is one in a recent series of attacks attributed to United States-led forces or the CIA.

Last week, a suspected US coalition strike on an extremist training camp in the area killed at least 10 Islamic militants.
