At least three militants died Monday in a US missile strike on a vehicle in a tribal town in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghan border, security officials said. The drone fired two missiles on a suspect vehicle and initial reports suggest three militants were killed, according to a security official, requesting anonymity. Another official confirmed the attack and said it took place about 10 kilometres east of Miramshah, the main town in North Waziristan, a region infested by Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants. A security official in Peshawar city said the missile targeted a moving car and killed three militants.
