A U.S. drone strike targeting a vehicle in Pakistan's northwestern tribal belt killed at least three militants on Saturday, security officials said, the latest in a recent spate of attacks.
The strike took place in Khawashi Khel village, five kilometers (three miles) west of Wana, the main town in the South Waziristan tribal district which borders Afghanistan, a Pakistani security official told Agence France Presse on condition of anonymity.
"The U.S. drone fired two missiles which completely destroyed the vehicle. At least three militants have been killed," the security official said.
Another official said the attack took place as militants were trying to move from one area to another near the border.
There have been a series of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan since a NATO conference on Afghanistan in Chicago last month.
