3 killed, kids hurt as fury grows over U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan

Missiles blew up part of a compound Wednesday in northwest Pakistan, killing three people — including one woman — a government official said.
The latest suspected U.S. drone strike also injured two children, military officers said.
Militants lived in the compound, but so did civilians, the officers said.
There’s growing fury over the U.S. pounding of areas known to be home to al Qaeda operatives, mainly in tribal zones along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan. A recent independent study said hundreds of civilians, including 176 children, have been killed in the attacks over the last eight years.
