(05-08 11:41)

South Korea's Defense Ministry said Thursday that three drones discovered around the inter-Korean border were sent by the North.
Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told a press briefing that the US-South Korea joint investigation team conducted a scientific probe into three North Korean drones after announcing an interim probe result on April 11.
Kim said three drones were pre-arranged to take off from and return to the North based on investigation into the built-in CPU chips. The unmanned aerial vehicles flew in accordance with pre-arranged coordinates via global positioning system. --Xinhua
