NATO Loses Unmanned Drone Over Libya

NATO lost contact with an "unmanned autonomous helicopter drone" over Libya today, but disputed the Libyan propaganda machine's claims that it was one of the alliance's manned attack helicopters.

"We are looking into the reasons behind the incident," NATO military spokesman Wing Commander Mike Bracken said in the statement.

Libyan state television reported it was one of Britain's Apache attack helicopters that went down, but Bracken said that was not true.

"NATO confirms it has not lost any attack helicopter," Bracken said.
