The Western military alliance, NATO, confirmed the Sunday incident, saying the drone went down due to technical problems.
However, the Taliban have claimed responsibility for the crash.
Washington has been using its assassination drones in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia, claiming that it is targeting militants, but civilians have been killed in the assaults.
The aerial attacks were initiated by former US President George W. Bush but have been escalated under President Barack Obama.
