(Newser) – A US missile attack killed at least 10 people today in northwest Pakistan, where many al-Qaeda and Taliban militants are based, Reuters reports. Drones fired missiles at a former government school that housed militants and their families in the latest move in  a heated US-Pakistan disagreement over militants in the border region as Afghanistan’s insurgency grows. Pakistan condemned a US troop assault last week inside its borders, the first since 2001.
