Unmanned Plane Crashes In Pakistan

Pakistan's Dawn reports:

Drone crashes in Waziristan
DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan, Sept 28 (AP) - An unmanned spy plane crashed in Waziristan region bordering Afghanistan.

The drone crashed 25 kilometers west of Miran Shah, the region's main town, said a security official on condition of anonymity.

He said the plane crashed in a remote area and caused no damage.

The official said authorities were trying to establish whether it was a U.S. aircraft that had flown in from Afghanistan, where NATO and government forces are battling resurgent Taliban and al-Qaida militants.
