MIRANSHAH, Pakistan - A US drone strike killed four suspected militants and wounded three others on Friday in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region near the Afghanistan border, intelligence officials and militants said.

The remotely piloted aircraft targeted a residential compound used by foreign militants in Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, a Pakistan Taliban commander told Reuters.

"All of those killed and injured in this attack were Arab, they belonged to some Arab country," the commander said.

Intelligence officials, however, said they did not have details on the identities or nationalities of the suspected militants.
