MOGADISHU, Somalia – Witnesses say a surveillance drone has crashed into a refugee camp in the Somali capital.

Drones have been used by the U.S. 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 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.

It looks to me like the US is purposely crashing their drones in the Middle East to provoke an attack on Israel/US in order to kick-start the war.

This whole scheme is just ridiculous and transparent.

Will they ask al-Shabab to give it back?
