ISAF drone crashes in Paktika
The aircraft crashed on Friday in a remote part of Zarghun Shahar district of the province due to a mechanical failure and was later intentionally destroyed by the coalition troops, said an ISAF statement.
“There were no successful insurgent attacks directed at ISAF aircraft yesterday,” added the statement.
However, a Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for shooting down the aircraft, killing all people on board.
