PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected American drone has killed two alleged militants in the country's northwest.

The two officials said the militants were riding on a motorcycle Saturday when two missiles hit them.

The incident happened in the village of Musaki outside of Mir Ali, one of the main towns in North Waziristan province.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

It was the second strike in Pakistan this month. An earlier attack killed 16 suspected militants in North Waziristan.

U.S. drone strikes have become a serious source of tension between Washington and Islamabad. The Pakistani government regularly denounces the strikes as a violation of the country's sovereignty.
