BERLIN -- German officials are being tightlipped about details surrounding a U.S. missile strike in Pakistan's rugged mountain border area that Pakistani officials say killed five German militants.

U.S. officials believe a cell of Germans and Britons at the heart of a terror alert for Europe -- a plot that U.S. officials link to al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden -- are believed to be hiding in that region.

German public television ARD cited unnamed sources Tuesday as saying that four German citizens of Turkish descent were killed in the missile attack.

Germany's Foreign Ministry said late Monday it was investigating the reports, but did not return calls seeking comment Tuesday on the militants' identities.
