Islamabad - Pakistani officials say a suspected US missile strike has killed three militants in a Pakistani tribal region along the Afghan border.

Senior government official Shahid Ali says two missiles fired from a drone hit a vehicle on Saturday near the Sheen Warsak area of South Waziristan, killing a Yemeni militant along with two others.

The attack was second this week in the same area. On Thursday, a missile strike hit a house killing three alleged militants. Two intelligence officials say another Yemeni militant was killed in that strike.

The intelligence officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to speak to reporters on the record.

Pakistan's tribal regions are considered key hideouts for Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters.
