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

Four missiles were fired at what was believed to be a militant hideout in Baghar in South Waziristan, the officials said.

South Waziristan is one of seven districts that make up Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

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

The strike is the fourth such strike this week in the tribal region.
