ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistani officials say an American drone strike in the frontier tribal areas has killed 10 suspected militants.

Two Pakistani intelligence officials say four missiles were fired at the village of Mana Raghzai near the border with Afghanistan on Sunday morning.

At the time of the attack, suspected militants were gathered to offer condolences to the brother of a militant commander killed during an American unmanned drone attack on Saturday.

Pakistan has repeatedly asked the U.S. to stop the drone attacks. But the U.S. has pushed ahead with the drone program that it considers vital to battling al-Qaida and the Taliban.
