US drone attack kills four militants in Pakistan: officials

A US drone strike destroyed a vehicle in Pakistan's tribal belt on Tuesday, killing four militants in the second drone attack since the killing of Osama bin Laden, local officials said. A security official said the drones fired two missiles into South Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal belt on the Afghan border that Washington has called an Al-Qaeda headquarters.
