Our top story this morning
The South Korean government held an emergency meeting at the presidential office Wednesday evening following confirmation that the two drones that crashed into South Korea over the last two weeks were from North Korea.
Presided by over by President Park's national security adviser Kim Jang-soo, South Korea's ministers of defense, unification and foreign affairs discussed how to beef up the country's air defenses and surveillance against such unmanned aircraft.
The South Korean military concluded Wednesday that a drone found on an island just south of the western maritime border this week as well as another one found late last month south of the demilitarized zone were from North Korea.
The rather elementary looking drones were found to contain photos of military installations and the residential quarters of Seoul's presidential compound.
They are also capable of holding up to one kilogram of explosives.
