Three militants were killed and two others wounded in a US drone attack in Pakistan's restive tribal region near the Afghan border on Sunday, security officials said.

The drone fired two missiles targeting a militant compound in Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, known as a stronghold of Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants, they said.
