RIA Novosti

A U.S. unmanned aerial vehicle has been shot down by Taliban forces in Afghanistan’s eastern Kunar province, Taliban spokesman Zabiulla Mojahed said on Wednesday.

He said the UAV, brought down on Tuesday evening, is the second in the past two days.

The International Security Assistance Force has yet to comment on the incident.

UAVs are used in Afghanistan for aerial reconnaissance, missile strikes, and ammunition deliveries to remote military garrisons.
