ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistani intelligence officials say missiles fired by a U.S. drone have killed at least four suspected militants near the Afghan border.

The officials say at least two insurgents were also wounded in Friday's strike near Miran Shah, the main town of the North Waziristan tribal region.

The U.S. often targets suspected Taliban and al-Qaida hideouts in Pakistan's northwestern tribal regions, but the latest attack was the first since Pakistan reopened NATO supply lines to Afghanistan on Wednesday.

Pakistan closed the supply routes in November in retaliation for American airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
