Nov 3 (Reuters) - Following are security developments in Pakistan on Thursday at 0945 GMT.

MIRANSHAH - A suspected U.S. drone aircraft on Thursday fired two missiles into a house in Miranshah, the main town of Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region, killing at least two militants and wounding three more, local intelligence officials said.

Militants often dispute official accounts, and there was no independent confirmation of the incident because the area is off limits to journalists. (Reporting by Haji Mujtaba; Writing by Zeeshan Haider; Editing by Chris Allbritton)
