NATO drone crashes in Ghazni
The incident happened late on Sunday due to a mechanical malfunction of the aircraft, which went down in the Gilan district, said the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
A statement from the NATO-led force said: "There was no report of enemy activity in the area. The UAV was recovered without incident (clash) and no civilian casualties or damage were reported.”
However, a Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the fighters had shot down the spy plane, whose wreckage was still with militants.
