NATO says an American F-16 fighter jet has crashed in eastern Afghanistan, killing the U.S. pilot.

NATO said in a statement Thursday that the cause of Wednesday's crash is still being investigated.

The U.S.-led military coalition did not disclose where the plane crashed.

Meanwhile, a pilotless aircraft of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has crashed in central Afghanistan, an official said on Wednesday.

The overnight crash in the Nirkh district of Maidan Wardak resulted from a technical fault, said the governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani.

Although he said there was enemy activity in the Ahangaran area at the time of the incident, the Taliban claimed shooting down the ISAF drone.
