US drone fired three missiles into Pakistan's North Waziristan region, killing nine people, intelligence officials and residents said, in the first such strike since Barack Obama became U.S. president.
The missiles hit a house in a village 2 km (1 mile) west of the town of Mir Ali, the officials said.
"Nine bodies have been pulled out the rubble," Ismail Wazir, a villager told Reuters by telephone.
He said the owner of the house, two brothers and three nephews were among the dead
