(CNN) -- A suspected U.S. drone strike killed four people Saturday in northwest Pakistan's volatile tribal region, local intelligence officials said.

The drone fired two missiles at a hideout in Data Khel, North Waziristan, killing four militants, according to the officials. They did not want to be named because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

North Waziristan is one of seven districts of Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan.
