Topic: Crashed drones programmed to fly from North Korea and back: South Korea


By Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - Three drones that crashed in South Korea had onboard flight programming that showed they were launched from North Korea and were meant to return after flying over military installations in the South, the defense ministry in Seoul said on Thursday. The second was discovered soon after a three-hour artillery barrage between North and South Korea in waters near a disputed maritime border. \"North Korea's action is a clear military provocation that violates the armistice and the South-North non-aggression agreement,\" the South's defense ministry said in a statement. In April, North Korea proposed a joint probe with the South but Seoul rejected the proposal.
