ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- A missile strike in a remote part of Pakistan killed at least eight suspected militants and wounded three others Thursday, Pakistan's state media reported.
The U.S. military denied any involvement in the incident, a source told CNN.
The strike happened in South Waziristan, a rugged mountainous region of Pakistan near its border with Afghanistan. Intelligence officials believe that the area is a haven for al Qaeda and Taliban militants.
Local tribesmen said the missile was fired from an unknown location and struck a house where the militants had gathered, the Associated Press of Pakistan said.
The country's Office of Inter-Services Public Relations told CNN that it was looking into the incident but could not provide details. The office coordinates release of military news and access to military sources.
An official with the agency said the Pakistani army did not have a big military presence in the village of Azam Warsak, where the attack occurred. E-mail to a friend
