KINSHASA, Oct 21 : A surveillance drone from the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo crashed in the east of the country on Monday without causing any injuries, the UN said.
The unmanned aircraft went down "shortly after taking off from the airport in Goma," Charles-Antoine Bambara, a spokesman for the UN mission in the country (MONUSCO), told AFP.
The drone landed in an uninhabited area some three kilometres (almost two miles) north of Goma, the capital of DR Congo's strife-torn North Kivu province. The crash caused no injuries or damage, Bambara said. ?AFP
