Suspected U.S. missile strike in Pakistan, 3 dead

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A suspected U.S. drone fired a missile into Pakistan’s North Waziristan region on the Afghan border on Monday, killing three militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The drone targeted a vehicle in the village of Tapi, about 15 km (9 miles) east of Miranshah, the main town in the region, which is a hotbed of Taliban and al Qaeda militants.
