      Drone Crashes in Pakistan


      An unmanned Pakistan naval aircraft crashed in the southern city of Karachi on Tuesday, but there was no damage on ground, police and naval officials said.

      "It was a Pakistan Navy UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and it was on a routine training sortie when it was hit by a bird," said Pakistan navy spokesman Commander Salman Ali.

      The UAV, commonly known as a drone, is used by the navy for surveillance, reconnaissance and photography, he said but would not provide details on the make or manufacturer of the aircraft.
