A US drone fired two missiles into a compound in northwest Pakistan early Friday killing at least six militants, officials said.
The attack took place in Dargah Mandi, about 10 kilometres (six miles) from Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan tribal district, along the Afghan border.
"It was a US drone strike. Six militants were killed, the death toll may rise," one security official in Miranshah told AFP.
A second security official in Peshawar, the regional capital, confirmed the attack and death toll.
