PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Ending a five-month hiatus, the Central Intelligence Agency resumed its drone campaign in Pakistan on Wednesday with a missile strike that killed at least four people at a compound in the tribal district of North Waziristan, Pakistani officials said.

The drone fired several missiles at a truck parked outside a house four miles north of Miram Shah, the main town in North Waziristan, said a Pakistani security official in Peshawar.

It was uncertain initially who had been killed in the strike. But a majority of the victims, by several accounts, were Uzbek fighters from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan — a Taliban-allied jihadi group that only hours earlier had boasted of its role in Sunday’s audacious assault on the Karachi airport, which led to at least 36 deaths.
