Karachi: A Pakistani Navy drone crashed near an oil refinery in Karachi on Tuesday after a bird hit.

“A Pakistan Navy UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) crashed after a bird hit it. It fell near an oil refinery and there was no (other) damage,” the Dawn quoted a Pakistan Navy spokesman, as saying.

He added that the drone was on a surveillance flight.

Pakistan has been developing its own drone technology for surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

The United States has, however, refused to give Pakistan the technology.
