Afghan officials say an American reconnaissance drone has crashed in Afghanistan’s southeastern province of Paktia, Press TV reports.

A Tuesday statement released by NATO confirmed the incident but claimed that the unmanned aircraft made an emergency landing “due to technical malfunction.”

According to locals, US-led forces have cordoned off the site of the incident.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid also claimed that members of the militant group shot down the drone in the Ahmadabad district of the province.
