Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. drone attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan district killed three people and injured two others.

The attack took place Thursday near Miranshah, a city in the volatile tribal belt of northwest Pakistan, near the Afghan border.

The officials said those killed in the attack are thought to be linked to the Haqqani network, a militant group based in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Last month, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed two suspected militants in the region.
