At least 25 al Qaeda-linked militants, mostly Uzbeks, were killed in a missile strike by US drones in Pakistan's South Waziristan region on the Afghan border on Saturday, a senior Taliban official said.

"Our people have informed us that at least 25 people were killed. It could be more. Most of them are Uzbek mujahideen," the official told Reuters.
