Oct. 27, 2017
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's military says it has shot down an Indian unmanned drone after it entered Pakistani airspace in country's part of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.
In a statement, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor says the drone was spying when it was shot down Friday in Rakhchikri village along the Line of Control in Kashmir.
He said Pakistani troops retrieved the wreckage. There was no immediate comment from India.
Kashmir is split between Pakistan and India, who claim the territory in its entirety and have fought two wars over it since their independence from British rule in 1947.
