PESHAWAR, Pakistan - At least two suspected foreign militants were killed in a US drone strike in Pakistan's volatile border region of North Waziristan, local officials said on Sunday.

Drones armed with missiles have inflicted the most damage against Taliban fighters in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas straddling the Afghan border over the past seven years, sometimes with heavy civilian casualties.

In the third drone attack since Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took office last month, two people riding a motorcycle were struck by missiles in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan on Saturday night, one official said.
