(CNN) -- ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN)-- A strike thought to be launched from a U.S. drone killed 11 suspected militants and injured several in Pakistan's tribal region on Monday, intelligence officials told CNN.

Two Pakistani intelligence officials said three missiles were fired by the suspected U.S. drone targeting a hideout of the militants in the village of Darga Mandi in North Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

The intelligence officials did not want to be named because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
