A US military drone aircraft has crashed onto the Mosul offices of a major Iraqi Islamist political party, which last year cut off all official relations with America. The US forces said the crash was “coincidence”.

AP reports [2] that a Shadow drone hit the Mosul offices of the Iraqi Islamic Party on Saturday. Nobody was said to have been injured, and military spokesmen said there was no indication that the drone had been shot down or otherwise tampered with.

The Shadow is a relatively small, unarmed drone aircraft used for surveillance and reconnaissance tasks.

The Iraqi Islamic Party is the largest Sunni Muslim political group in Iraq, and forms part of the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
