Three UAVs found in South Korea came from North Korea: report
Updated: 2014-05-08 11:06:51 KST

The final verdict is in: the three unmanned aerial vehicles found on South Korean soil last month did in fact come from North Korea.
A joint South Korea-U.S. investigative team looking into the case released its final report on Thursday, stating definitively that the three drone's departed from the North and were headed back before crashing in South Korea.
All three UAVs flew over key military facilities and took dozens of pictures, a clear violation of Korea's armistice agreement and the non-aggression pact, which forbids the North and South from infiltrating each other's airspace.
South Korea's defense ministry plans to submit the results to the United Nations and said it will enhance air surveillance and come up with new strategies to prevent future infiltrations.
