DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani intelligence officials say suspected U.S. unmanned aircraft fired missiles at a house in northwestern Pakistan, killing six alleged militants.

The officials say the house that was hit Tuesday morning was located in Dremala village in the South Waziristan tribal area. The village is located close to the border with North Waziristan.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

The U.S. does not publicly acknowledge the covert CIA drone program in Pakistan.
