Islamabad, (IANS) At least four suspected militants were killed in a drone strike in Pakistan’s northwest tribal area early Thursday, media reports said.

The strike took place at pre-dawn, Xinhua reported citing the Ary TV channel.

A US unmanned aircraft fired two missiles at a house suspected to be a militant hideout in Mir Ali area of North Waziristan.

The identities of those killed were not immediately known.

On Dec 1, Al Qaeda leader Abdul Rehman Azman, a Yemeni national believed to be a close aide of slain chief Osama bin Laden, was killed in a drone strike in neighbouring South Waziristan.

Thursday’s drone strike was the 37th of its kind in 2012. At least 265 people have been killed in such strikes this year.
