ISLAMABAD (AP) -- A government official and a witness say missiles believed fired from a U.S. unmanned plane have killed seven people in northwestern Pakistan.

The identities of those killed in the late Thursday strike in Kurram region were not immediately known.

A senior official in Kurram agency says the house targeted was believed to be frequented by Islamist militants.

Villager Ismail Khan says spy planes were seen hovering over the area before the attack.

He says local militants have retrieved seven bodies from the destroyed house.

The United States has launched more than 30 missile strikes in Pakistan on al-Qaida and Taliban targets close to the Afghan border since last year.
