A US drone strike, the first this year, Wednesday killed at least four militants in a northwest Pakistani tribal district where pressure was building on Islamabaad to launch a full-scale military operation, officials said.

The missiles hit a vehicle and a compound in Dargah Mandi village in North Waziristan, officials said.
