MIRAMSHAH, Pakistan, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Four suspected militants in Pakistan's North Waziristan region were killed Friday in what Pakistani officials said was a U.S. drone attack.

Four militants inside the house were killed, an intelligence official said.

It was not know if the victims were affiliated with a specific group.
