A United States drone strike on Friday killed three suspected militants in a compound in Pakistan's northwestern tribal area of Kurram, officials said.

Officials said the strike took place in remote Ghuz Ghari village in Kurram agency, close to the Afghan border where at least five fighters from the Afghan Taliban had gathered.

"Two rockets were dropped on Molloy's house and three people were killed", the minister said.

Another Taliban member, whose name was not mentioned in the report either, said Mohib was part of the Afghan Taliban.

The Shpageeza tournament, now in its fifth season, is one of a small number of Western-style sports competitions along with Afghan Premier League football that has grown up since a US-led campaign toppled the Taliban in 2001. "This is just a propaganda of the Western media", he said.

Later, the report added, they sent a written statement to Maulana Haq, extending full support to Pakistan in case of an attack by the USA or India.

The US-led global forces in Afghanistan had no immediate information on the strike.

The US will not succeed in Afghanistan without the support and cooperation of Pakistan, which has been a source of "significant challenges" in the war-torn country, President Donald Trump's nominee for the American ambassador to Afghanistan has told lawmakers.

Pakistan considers the drone strike a violation of sovereignty, while the US accuses Pakistan of providing safe havens for militants. "You (enemies) should know that Afghanistan's strategic situation has changed and you (Taliban) can not win on the battlefields", he added.
