Islamabad: At least 21 suspected militants were killed Friday night in two drone strikes in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, media reports said.

The first drone fired two missiles around 9 p.m. at a house suspected to be a militant hideout in Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, Xinhua reported citing Urdu TV channel Dunya. Five militants were killed in the attack.

The identities of those killed were not known.

Citing local media, Xinhua said at least 16 people were killed in a second US drone strike in the same area.

It put the toll at 22, saying four people were killed in the first drone strike and 18 in the second attack.
