US drone strike kills four militants in Pakistan

 

Pakistani intelligence officials say missiles fired by a U.S. drone have killed at least four suspected militants near the Afghan border.

The officials say at least two insurgents were also wounded in today's strike near Miran Shah, the main town of the North Waziristan tribal region.

The US often targets suspected Taliban and al-Qa'ida hideouts in Pakistan's northwestern tribal regions, but the latest attack was the first since Pakistan reopened Nato supply lines to Afghanistan on Wednesday.

Pakistan closed the supply routes in November in retaliation for American airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
