The South Korean government says three drones that were recently discovered crashed in the South did, in fact, come from North Korea.
The defense ministry says a team of investigators gathered evidence that shows Pyongyang had sent the unmanned aerial vehicles that crashed in Paju, north of Seoul, on the western Baengnyeong-do Island and in Samcheok , Gangwon-do province.
The ministry added the vehicles traveled over the South's military zones and took bird's-eye view photos of South Korea's western islands and the capital region, including the presidential office.
The investigators, however, failed to decode the drones' GPS coordinates to their origin, which would be considered a smoking gun.
