Three officials said this morning's strikes targeted Pakistani Taliban's hideouts in the South Waziristan tribal region.
They say identity of the killed militants is not known yet, but two important commanders of the Pakistani Taliban may be among them.
A suspected US missile strike on Thursday killed a top Pakistani militant commander, Maulvi Nazir, whose fighters focus on attacks against US and allied Nato troops in Afghanistan.
