Officials: Suspected drone strike kills 4 in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – A suspected U.S. drone strike killed four people in northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday, three officials told CNN. A drone fired five missiles at a vehicle in the village of Khadarkhel in North Waziristan, a local government official and two intelligence officials said.

That's an area near Pakistan's border with Afghanistan that has been a haven for Islamic extremists. The officials asked not to be named because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
