Pakistan says US drones kill 4 in northwest

Pakistan intelligence officials say a volley of American drone-fired missiles has hit three compounds in a northwestern insurgent stronghold, killing at least four people.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with department policy, say Friday's strikes targeted areas in the South Waziristan tribal agency.
America has launched several hundred drone strikes targeting militants. They are intensely unpopular among many Pakistanis and are publicly criticized by the government. They are, however, believed to have had tacit consent from the Pakistani military, though souring relations this year may have changed that.
U.S. officials do not comment on the CIA-led program but privately say the attacks are highly accurate.
