Remotely-piloted ISAF aircraft crashes in Ghazni

KABUL (PAN): A pilotless aircraft of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has crashed in southern Afghanistan due to a technical failure, the alliance said on Saturday.

"We can confirm that a small ISAF remotely-piloted aircraft did crash in Ghazni as a result of a mechanical issue," the ISAF media office said in response to an email from Pajhwok Afghan News.

The multinational force said it had no operational reports to indicate that any civilians were harmed or property damaged as a result of the crash in the Taliban-infested Andar district.

Meanwhile, rebel spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the Taliban shot down the plane during a fight with ISAF troops in the area late on Friday. He gave no more details.
