(CNN) -- Two suspected militants were killed when missiles thought to be from a U.S. drone struck in Mir Ali Tehsil of North Waziristan Agency on Saturday, Pakistani intelligence sources said.

Two missiles were fired as the suspected militants rode a motorbike in the village of Mosaki, the sources said.

The attack damaged nearby houses, but no other casualties were immediately reported.

North Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan, is one of seven districts of Pakistan.

The United States routinely does not comment on suspected drone strikes.
