An unmanned U.S. plane crashed in northwest Pakistan

An unmanned U.S. plane crashed Saturday in tribal region of northwest Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, an official source announced.
Unmanned aircraft crashed in mountainous Mishihel, about 30 kilometers west of Miranshah, the main town in the Waziristan region (north), often the target of strikes against the Taliban, said military officials.
"An unmanned U.S. plane crashed, apparently because of technical problems," said a military official in Peshawar. The incident was confirmed by authorities in the region.

The rebels have surrounded the site, the official added, declining to comment on statements 

by the Taliban , that the device would have been shot down by insurgents.
U.S. President Barack Obama admitted for the first time last month that his country made ​​unmanned aircraft strikes against Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters in Pakistan.
These shots are very criticized by the American people that they believe a violation of the sovereignty of the country and accused the United States and its allies responsible for the violence that affects Pakistan.
According to a report, 45 reported U.S. bombing the tribal areas of Pakistan in 2009, the year Obama took office, 101 in 2010 and 64 in 2011.
