Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- A suspected U.S. drone strike killed three suspected militants in Pakistan's tribal region on Saturday, intelligence officials told CNN.

Two missiles were fired on the vehicle of suspected militants in the area Data Khel of North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two officials said.

The intelligence officials asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
