ASSADABAD, Afghanistan, April 26 (Xinhua) -- An unmanned plane crashed in the eastern Kunar province with Assadabad as its capital 185 km east of Kabul on Saturday, provincial police chief Abdul Habib Sayedkhili said.

"A pilotless plane was crashed in Wani area of Shigal district at 05:00 a.m. local time today but caused no loss of life and property," Sayedkhili told Xinhua.

Taliban militants have claimed of responsibility for shooting down the unmanned plane. However, Sayedkhili rejected Taliban claim as groundless, saying the unmanned plane has crashed due to technical problems.

The mountainous Kunar province bordering Pakistan's tribal areas has been the scene of Taliban militants' activities over the past couple of years.
