Pakistani drone crashes in northwest

A Pakistani reconnaissance drone has crashed in a restive northwestern tribal region after developing a technical fault, security officials said yesterday.

The unmanned military aircraft was on a surveillance mission when it came down on Thursday night in Azam Warsak area, west of Wana, the main town of the South Waziristan tribal region, a senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Another official confirmed the crash and said that Taliban militants surrounded the site and later took possession of the wreckage.
