The Pakistani army said Wednesday it had found the wreckage of a suspected US spy plane near the Afghan border, but denied claims the drone had been shot down. Three Pakistani intelligence officials earlier said troops and tribesmen had shot down the aircraft late Tuesday near Jalal Khel, a village in Pakistan's South Waziristan region. However, a Pakistan army statement on Wednesday said security forces had recovered the crashed surveillance aircraft. It said a technical problem appeared to have brought it down and that it was investigating further. US officials did not confirm the loss of any their drones, which gather intelligence and fire missiles on Taliban and al-Qaida bases in Pakistan's border belt.
