Islamabad: At least three people were killed and four injured in a US drone strike launched early Monday in Pakistan`s northwest tribal area of North Waziristan, Xinhua reported.

The strike was carried out at about 4.00 a.m. local time when unmanned US aircraft fired two missiles at a house suspected of being a militant hideout in North Waziristan`s Datta Khel area, local media said.

On Sunday, four people were killed in a drone attack in this tribal region`s Dargah Mandi area.

At least 117 people have reportedly been killed in such attacks since the start of the year.
