ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- At least 13 people died and 11 were injured in a missile strike Thursday on a seminary and a house in Pakistan's South Waziristan tribal region, officials said.
The missile hit the school and a house in the Azam Warsak area of the province while students were asleep, shaking the entire area, the Press Trust of India reported.
It was not known whether the missile was fired by coalition forces in Afghanistan or by Pakistani forces, PTI said. The strike occurred as local militants in South Waziristan called for a unilateral cease-fire in the region.
Residents reported three missiles were fired, but officials said only one missile struck the seminary.
