Unmanned U.S. spy plane crashes near Pakistan village
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- An unmanned U.S. spy plane returning from a mission crashed Saturday near a remote village in southwestern Pakistan, not far from a military base being used by U.S. forces, U.S. and Pakistani officials said.
The Predator's wreckage was found near Karim Bakhsh, about 15 miles northeast of Jacobabad, and was being examined by U.S. soldiers, said local police official Mohammed Mustafa.
"The plane, which was on a routine surveillance mission, lost contact with the Jacobabad air base at 3:30 a.m.," said Mustafa.
In Washington, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Michael Humm said the plane was returning from a mission in support of Operation Enduring Freedom when it crashed and that enemy fire was not involved.
