Two officials say the airstrike took place Wednesday near Miran Shah, which is the main town in North Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
The officials said the identity of those killed was not immediately known.
North Waziristan is a stronghold for Pakistan Taliban and foreign militants, and has been a frequent target of suspected U.S. drone strikes.
