IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Islamabad, Sept 29 IRNA - An American spy plane crashed in the Pakistani border region last night, a TV channel reported. There was no official confirmation of the report. Geo television reported that the American pilot-less spy aircraft came down at Lund Muhamamd Khan village, some 15 km from Miranshah, the headquarters of North Waziristan.
Quoting local sources, the TV reported that tribesmen showed parts of the drone to each other.
The Pakistani tribal regions are under observation from the Americans because of activities of al-Qaeda and Taliban linked suspects.
Hundreds of al-Qaeda remnants have fled to the Pakistani tribal regions from neighboring Afghanistan since the U.S-led coalition forces have launched military operation in 2001.
