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

The drone fired two missiles at a suspected militant vehicle near Mir Ali, North Waziristan, one of the seven districts in Pakistan's mostly ungoverned tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said.

The officials asked not to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to the news media.

It was the 95th suspected drone strike in Pakistan this year, compared with 52 in 2009, according to a CNN count.
