U.S. drone fires more missiles into Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - A U.S. drone fired three missiles into a stronghold of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud on Tuesday at a funeral for a militant killed in a similar strike earlier in the day, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

Four people were killed and three were wounded in the attack in the Makeen area near the Afghan border, said the intelligence officials, who declined to be identified.
