Suspected US missiles killed four alleged insurgents in a Pakistani tribal region near the Afghan border Monday, officials said, while a top US general arrived here to discuss the countries' efforts in the war against Islamist extremists.

The three missiles were fired minutes apart at a moving vehicle in the Marsi Khel area in North Waziristan, said two intelligence officials who confirmed the death toll on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.

US Central Command chief Gen. David Petraeus was in Pakistan on Monday meeting with Pakistani army chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. According to an army statement, the two "discussed matters of professional interest."

Also Monday, Pakistani army commandos backed by artillery and mortar fire killed 18 insurgents in Bajur.
