QUETTA, Pakistan (AFP) – An American surveillance drone crashed in southwestern Pakistan on Thursday near a paramilitary base close to the Afghan border, Pakistani officials said.
“It was an American surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle. It crashed on this side of the border,” a security official in the area told AFP.
He said the drone had come down — apparently due to a technical fault — some two kilometres inside Pakistani territory in Chaman town in insurgency-hit Baluchistan province, but had caused no damage.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the wreckage of the aircraft had been recovered.
