At least seven people were killed when a US drone strike tonight targeted a militant compound and a vehicle in northwest Pakistan's restive tribal region close to the border.

The drone strike in Danday Darpakhel area near North Waziristan tribal region's Miranshah area killed seven people late night, sources said.

The US aerial unmanned plane fired rockets targeting the compound and killed seven people whose identity was not known.

This was the second drone attack in two months.

Last month, seven militants were killed and three injured when a drone strike targeted a compound in Mangroti village, in the Shawal tehsil of North Waziristan.
