Islamabad, Pakistan (CMC) A suspected U.S. drone strike killed 16 people and wounded six others Thursday in one of Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal regions, two officials said.

The attack targeted a compound on the border of Orakzai Agency and North Waziristan, a local government official and a military official said.
A drone strike in the same agency in 2009 killed 11 suspected militants from a faction of the Pakistani Taliban.
The United States carries out drone strikes in Pakistan aimed at dismantling terror operations, but generally does not comment on them.
