 Updated at: 1321 PST,  Sunday, January 23, 2011
 MIRANSHAH: At least seven people were killed in two separate US drone attacks in North Waziristan tribal district on Sunday, officials said.

"The US drone hit a car immediately after it parked outside a house. Three militants have been killed," an intelligence official in Miranshah told, adding that the vehicle was completely destroyed and the house badly damaged.

A second intelligence official said the drone fired two missiles.

The unmanned aircraft launched the missiles in Datta Khel, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of North Waziristan's main town of Miranshah.

A second US missile attack killed at least three militants, local officials said.
