      US drone crashes near Jacobabad


      By Our Correspondent

      JACOBABAD, Jan 1: An unmanned surveillance plane of the United
      States crashed in the rice fields of the Juma Khan village, near
      Saddar police station, here on Wednesday.

      According to eyewitness, the plane was seen circling over the
      Shahbaz Air Base - Pakistan's third largest airbase - before
      crashing into the rice fields.

      Officials said the plane, which was on a routine surveillance
      mission, crashed because of a technical fault.

      Army and rangers personnel rushed to the scene of the crash after
      being informed by US officials based at the air base and collected
      the wreckage of the plane.

      The debris of the plane were brought back to the air base in a
      tractor trolley.
