Suspected U.S. Drone Strike Kills Three In South Waziristan

Pakistani officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed three militants in Pakistan's tribal region of South Waziristan along the Afghan border.

Senior government official Shahid Ali said two drone-fired missiles hit a vehicle on December 1 near the Sheen Warsak area, located close to the main town of Wana, killing a Yemeni militant and two others.

The attack was second this week in the same area.

On November 29, a missile strike on a house killed three alleged militants.
