MIR ALI, Pakistan (AP) – Intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed three people in a northwest Pakistani tribal region.

The strike occurred in North Waziristan, a hotbed of militant groups engaged in the fight against Western troops across the border in Afghanistan.

Two intelligence officials said the Saturday strike also wounded two people. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to media on the record.

The U.S. has launched numerous missile strikes on militant targets in Pakistan’s tribal regions. Pakistan publicly protests the strikes but is believed to secretly aid them.
