At least seven people were killed in a U.S. drone strike launched Monday evening in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan, reported local English TV channel Express.

According to the report, the U.S. drones fired two missiles at a vehicle in the Machi Khel area of the Mir Ali district in North Waziristan, a place bordering Afghanistan, which is believed to be a stronghold of militants.

Monday's strike is the 32nd of its kind in Pakistan in 2011. Up to date, at least 234 people, most of whom are believed to be suspected militants, have reportedly been killed in such strikes since this year.
