Mogadishu: Witnesses say a surveillance drone has crashed into a refugee camp in the Somali capital.

Drones have been used by the US to attack or observe al Qaeda-linked militants in the Horn of Africa nation.

Refugees and soldiers in Mogadishu`s Badbado camp say they watched the drone crash on Friday into a hut made of sticks, corrugated cans and plastic bags.

Sacdiyo Sheikh Madar, a refugee at the camp, says African Union peacekeepers came to remove it.

Police officer Ali Hussein says the drone was shaped like a small plane. A similar drone crashed into a house in Mogadishu last year.
