Peshawar: At least five militants were killed Wednesday in a US drone strike in the restive Datta Khel area of Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region, a stronghold of al-Qaeda and Taliban militants near the Afghan border.

The drone targeted a car with three missiles, security officials said.

They said five militants were killed in the attack in the Datta Khel area, 25 km west of the main North Waziristan town of Miranshah, which has witnessed frequent strikes by US drones in the past two-three years.
