A suspected US drone strike has killed eight militants thought to have German nationality in northwest Pakistan.

Two missiles from what is reported to have been a CIA pilotless aircraft struck a mosque in Mirali in North Waziristan.

There have been a number of drone hits in the area over the last few weeks.

The strikes comes after the United States and Britain issued warnings of an increased risk of terrorist attacks in Europe possibly planned in Pakistan.
