KARACHI, Pakistan (CNN) -- A suspected U.S. missile attack killed 11 people Thursday in northwest Pakistan, an official said.
Six others were wounded, according to Arshad Majeed, an official in the Kurram region, where the attack occurred.
The missiles are believed to have been shot by a drone and Majeed said the attack targeted suspected militants. No other details were immediately available.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said he didn't know anything about the attack and wouldn't comment if he did.
The U.S. military in Afghanistan routinely offers no comment on reported cross-border strikes, which are normally launched from unmanned drones.
But the United States is the only country operating in the region known to have the capability to launch missiles from drones, which are controlled remotely.
