Pakistani intelligence officials say a USA drone strike has hit a militant compound in a northwestern tribal region near the Afghan border, killing seven militants from the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network.

Omar Zawak, the provincial government spokesman, confirmed the incident, saying the Taliban also assaulted the NDS Center while the insider attack was under way, sparking fierce clashes with Afghan security guards.

The spokesman said Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah immediately replaced Mehsud with another commander, Mufti Noor Wali.

Two insurgents of the Taliban outfit were killed and nine others arrested in southern province of Helmand, Afghan Defense Ministry said Sunday.

However, the Pakistani media had reported earlier that Sajna came under the attack in Afghanistan's eastern Paktika province, bordering Pakistan.
