Suspected US missiles have killed four alleged terrorists in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal area, officials said Friday.

Government official Noor Ahmad said the three missiles flattened a house in the Toorkhel area near the main city of Miran Shah.

The US has frequently targeted North Waziristan in its campaign to kill al-Qaida and Taliban leaders using missiles.

Two intelligence officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media on the record also confirmed the Friday strike.
