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

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