At least four people were killed in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan on Sunday evening, local media reported.

Local TV channel ARY said that a U.S. drone fired two missiles at a house of suspected militants in Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, a restive tribal area on the Pakistan-Afghan border.

The house was razed to ground following the attack and some more people are feared to be buried under the debris.

Sunday's strike was launched in the country's tribal area after a brief lull of 22 days. Earlier on March 22, a U.S. drone attacked a house in the same area, killing four people and injuring two others.

It is the 11th attack of its kind in the country's semi- autonomous northwestern tribal belt since the advent of this year. So far altogether 67 people including two key Al-Qaeda operatives have been killed with several others injured in these strikes in the area.
