At least two people were killed Saturday in an American drone strike in a northwestern tribal region of Pakistan, according to intelligence officials.

The drone strike took place at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday in Mosaki village, near Mir Ali, the second-largest town in North Waziristan tribal region, alongside the border with Afghanistan. North Waziristan is a stronghold of the Taliban and militants affiliated with Al Qaeda.

The two victims, whom the authorities believed to be militants, were riding a motorcycle when they were targeted by the drone strike.
