Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- A U.S. drone strike in Pakistan's tribal region on Saturday killed four suspected militants, intelligence officials told CNN.

Two intelligence officials said the drone fired two missiles at a suspected militant vehicle in the Miran Shah area of North Waziristan, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's mostly ungoverned tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Based on a count by the CNN Islamabad bureau, Saturday's drone strike was the 91st this year compared to 52 in all of 2009.

The officials asked to not be named because they were not suppose to talk to media.
