Drone Strike Kills Four Militants In North Waziristan

Pakistani officials say a U.S. drone strike in the North Waziristan region killed four militants early on May 26.

A senior security official, speaking under condition on anonymity, said the drone fired two missiles at a house near Miranshah and "at least four militants were killed."

A local tribesman, also speaking under condition of anonymity, said other militants had cordoned off the area and were searching through the rubble of the house.

North Waziristan is a stronghold for the Haqqani network -- an insurgent group blamed for a number of attacks in Afghanistan.

This latest drone strike was the third in four days in North Waziristan.
