ISLAMABAD, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- At least seven suspected militants were killed in a U.S. drone strike late Sunday night in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan, reported local Urdu TV channel Ajj.

No more details are immediately available.

The strike, if confirmed true, came one day after the conclusion of a four-day Eid holiday, a festival celebrated by Muslims to mark the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, which ended on August 30.

Sunday's drone strike, the 50th of its kind in Pakistan this year, has brought the death toll to 451, most of whom are suspected militants.
