At least six people were killed in a US drone strike on a militant compound in a northwestern Pakistani tribal area on Sunday, officials said.
The attack took place in Shawal , about 55 kilometres (35 miles) west of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal district, along the Afghan border.
"US drones fired four missiles into a militant compound. At least six militants were killed and three others were wounded," a security official told AFP.
A second security official confirmed the attack and death toll.
