An extremist organization reported 15 of its members were killed in a U.S. missile strike in Afghanistan, said members of a U.S. group that monitors Islamic extremist Web sites.

The report was posted Friday on a Web site by the Turkistan Islamic Party, SITE Intelligence Group said. SITE quoted the group as saying 13 Uighurs and two Turks were killed Tuesday by a missile fired by a U.S. unmanned aircraft in Afghanistan but did not say where.

Pakistani officials reported two missile attacks along the border Tuesday.
