Mir Ali, Nov.26 (ANI): Pakistani intelligence officials said a suspected US missile strike killed four alleged militants in Pir Kali village in North Waziristan.

It's the latest in a barrage of attacks by unmanned drones on the stronghold of Taliban fighters targeting American and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

The officials said a pair of missiles hit a moving vehicle in Pir Kali village. The area is home to a mix of Afghan and Pakistani Taliban.

The two Pakistani officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media, a Dawn report has said.

The US has ramped up its officially unacknowledged drone attacks in Pakistan's lawless border region, launching over 100 missile strikes this year. (ANI)
