#2 Update: "It's remote so information is coming slowly but we can confirm that four missiles killed eight Pakistani Taliban and five guests," said the intelligence official, referring to five foreign militants.
Also: On Thursday, a suicide bomber attacked a meeting of about 200 pro-government ethnic Pashtun tribesmen drawing up plans to drive militants out of their area, killing 25 of them. Up to 40 militants were killed in air strikes launched in response to the bomb attack, said Fazl-e-Rabi Khan, a senior government administrator in Bajaur.
