Peshawar: A US drone struck a vehicle in
the restive North Waziristan tribal region of northwest
Pakistan today, killing at least four militants, security
officials said.

The unmanned spy plane fired two missiles at the
vehicle in Naurak village, located 15-km from Miranshah, the
main town in North Waziristan Agency.

The region is considered the hub of the Haqqani
network and other Taliban elements that target US and allied
forces across the border in Afghanistan.

The dead were suspected Taliban militants, officials
said. The vehicle was destroyed.

Over 200 people have died in more than 40 drone
strikes since September.

Today`s attack came three days after a similar strike
killed 20 militants near Miranshah.
