September 25, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The Pakistani military said a pilotless aircraft that crashed in the northwestern region of South Waziristan had been recovered, but the Pentagon denied any U.S. drone had been lost in the area.

Other countries with troops in the NATO force in neighboring Afghanistan use unmanned aerial craft, but the United States is the only one known to fly them inside Pakistan.

The U.S. military said that one of its aerial drones had gone down with engine problems in Paktika province in eastern Afghanistan, about 60 miles west of Pakistan, but that U.S. forces had immediately recovered the aircraft.
