A drone strike has killed at least three militants in Pakistan's tribal area.

Speaking under condition of anonymity, security officials confirmed two missiles were fired at a building in the village of Dawar Musaki in the North Waziristan region on September 24.

Some officials, however, said five militants were killed.

The officials said some of those killed were foreigners.

There were no details about the foreign militants' nationalities or how many of them were killed.
