ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Four suspected militants were killed and a fifth injured when a US drone fired missiles into Pakistaninfo-icon's lawless tribal region of North Waziristan, near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border, on Monday.

The attack took place in the Datakhel area near Miranshah, the main town in the restive region, a local official told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity. The unmanned spy plane fired missiles into a house and a vehicle, the official said, without disclosing the identities of the victims.

According to Naseer Azam Mehsud, a local journalist, the first strike hit the vehicle, killing two people. The second attack that came moments later targeted a house, killing three people and injuring a fourth.

The US aircraft continued to hover over the area for some time, creating great panic among residents, Mehsud said.
