A suspected US drone strike killed five people on the mountainous Pakistan-Afghanistan border, government and militant sources said on Tuesday, days after a Canadian-American couple held hostage by the Taliban were freed from the same area.

Taliban sources said at least five members of the Pakistan-based Haqqani militants, allied to the Taliban, were killed in Monday's strike and eight were wounded.
