A suspected US missile strike Friday killed at least three foreign militants in a Pakistani tribal area known as a hub of Taliban and Al-Qaeda activity, a senior security official said.

The strike took place in the South Waziristan tribal area on the border with Afghanistan -- the second suspected US missile attack there in as many days.

"Two missiles were fired on Taliban offices near Ladha village in South Waziristan, killing three foreign militants and wounding two others," a senior security official told AFP.

The official had no immediate details about the nationalities of those killed.
