Our top story this morning
The South Korean military on Sunday discovered yet another small drone, presumably from North Korea, on a mountain in Samcheok, Gangwon Province, some 1-hundred-30 kilometers south of the inter-Korean border.
This is the third such discovery in as many weeks and all three drones are identical sky-blue and triangle-shaped.
Preliminary analysis shows the computer components inside the drone contain chips and microprocessors released back in the early 1990s, but have long been obsolete.
Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said it will take strong actions over Pyongyang's violation of its airspace,.. and will also mobilize units across the country to search for other drones.
The South Korean military is considering purchasing advanced low-altitude surveillance radar systems and anti-aircraft guns to better detect small aircraft and shoot them down.
