Local residents reported seeing US planes and unmanned drones fly overhead in the hours leading up to the missile strike, which they claim came from coalition forces deployed 20km away on the other side of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Representatives from the US-led coalition and the separate Nato-led force in Afghanistan denied involvement in the missile attack.
The identities of those killed is not known, though a local official said that the house which was destroyed was rented out by a group of foreign Arabs, believed to be Egyptians.
American officials believe that many Al-Qaeda and Taliban militants are hiding out in the region, including, possibly, Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.
The attack came hours before Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Gilani was scheduled to meet US President George W Bush at the White House.
