Five militants were killed Sunday night by a U.S. drone in Pakistan's tribal region, two intelligence officials and one local government official told CNN.
The drone fired two missiles at a militant compound in Alwara Mandi, a village 80 kilometers (49 miles) west of Miranshah in North Waziristan, one of seven districts in the tribal region.
The drone strike was the 21st this year, according to a CNN tally. All the strikes have targeted locations in North Waziristan or along the border between North and South Waziristan.
The officials asked not to be named because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
