— Pakistani officials said a suspected U.S. missile strike killed three militants in a Pakistani tribal region along the Afghan border.

Senior government official Shahid Ali said two drone-fired missiles hit a vehicle Saturday near the Sheen Warsak area of South Waziristan, killing a Yemeni militant and two others.

The attack was the second this week in the same area. On Thursday, a missile strike on a house killed three alleged militants. Two intelligence officials say another Yemeni was killed in that strike.

The intelligence officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief reporters.

Pakistan's tribal regions are considered key hideouts for Taliban and al-Qaida fighters.
