PARACHINAR, Pakistan — Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected American missile strike from a drone aircraft has killed four alleged militants in a Taliban stronghold close to the Afghan border.

Two local intelligence officials and a government official say at least three missiles hit a vehicle Saturday just outside Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal region.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media on the record.

The region is home to Taliban groups that focus their attacks on US troops across the border in Afghanistan. Al-Qaida and Pakistani insurgents are also active there.
