Pakistan helps U.S. set up missile strike: source
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - A U.S. drone aircraft missile strike that killed five militants and destroyed a container of arms and ammunition on Wednesday was the result of U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sharing, a senior Pakistani official said.
"It shows improving intelligence coordination on the ground," said the official, who had knowledge of the operation and spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.
