DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed four alleged militants near the Afghan border.
The officials say the missiles fired from an unmanned drone hit a car Tuesday in Kutab Khel village near Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal area. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
The officials say the area has a mix of Afghan and Pakistani Taliban fighters, as well as other foreign militants.
