ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- An attack by unmanned aircraft in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region Friday killed four suspected militants, Pakistani military officials said.

The missiles fired from the drones were fixed on a target in Machi Khel, a village in a district considered a stronghold for al-Qaida and Taliban militants, Pakistan's English-language newspaper Dawn News reported.

CNN reported officials as saying two missiles struck a vehicle believed to belong to militants.
