The U.S. military has launched two or three missiles into North Waziristan, Pakistan, killing three, two Pakistani military sources report. The two commented on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the media.
U.S. attacks in Pakistan have become a controversial issue as of late, with multiple incursions in recent weeks. Earlier this month, Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari said he would not allow any violation of his nation's sovereignty.
A week after Zardari's statement, Pakistani forces fired upon two U.S. military choppers crossing into Pakistani territory. President Bush has authorized U.S. incursions in July to go after insurgents. U.S. military officials deny involvement.
