Intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed two Arabs and three other people in northwest Pakistan.

The Pakistani officials say the attack late Sunday took place in Chota Janikhel village close to Bannu town. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The identities of those killed were not immediately known. It was the latest in almost three dozen suspected U.S. missile strikes in Pakistan's border region since last year.
