Officials say an apparent U.S. drone missile strike has killed two people in Pakistan's northwestern tribal zone.

Officials said the suspected militants were riding on a motorcycle when they were hit on July 13.

The attack took place in the Mir Ali area of the North Waziristan tribal district, a stronghold of Islamist militants near the Afghan border.

The AFP news agency quotes local security officials as saying both suspected militants were believed to be from Turkmenistan, but this has not yet been officially confirmed.
