ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, May 22 (UPI) -- A suspected U.S. drone strike killed nine people in Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, local officials said.

The airstrike in North Waziristan Friday night allegedly killed two children, two women and five men, Pakistani intelligence and administrative officials said, CNN reported.

The U.S. military never comments on suspected drone attacks, the report said, but it is the only force in the region with the ability to launch missiles from remotely controlled drones.
