Israel downs unmanned aircraft

The Israeli army has released video footage of what it claims is the shooting down of an unmanned aircraft in Israeli airspace.

Troops are searching for remains of the aircraft in the north of the Negev desert. It is not clear where it came from.

The Israeli Defence Force said it was examining the aircraft's flight path and whether it was being used for reconnaissance or for a potential act of terrorism.
