(AP) PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Intelligence officials in Pakistan say a suspected U.S. drone strike has killed at least three people in North Waziristan.

Two intelligence officials said two missiles hit a house Friday in the village of Dande Derpa Khel near the main town of Miran Shah.

The officials say the village is the stronghold of Haqqani militant network.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren’t authorized to speak to journalists.

The missile strike is the second after Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit to the U.S. last month where he pressed for stopping the drone strikes.
