Suspected drone strike kills 2 in Pakistan

A suspected U.S. drone strike killed two people in Pakistan's tribal region Monday, intelligence officials said.

It was the 19th suspected drone strike in Pakistan this month. That's the highest number in any month since the United States began attacks with the unmanned aircraft, according to a CNN count.

Two missiles hit a suspected militant hideout in Khush Hali, a village in North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said.

This is the third suspected U.S. drone strike in as many days in Pakistan's tribal region and - based on a CNN count - the 65th this year.

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