Five unidentified drones were spotted overnight Tuesday flying over flying over various iconic sites in Paris, including the Eiffel Tower – and the U.S. Embassy. It is not clear who sent the drones, nor do authorities know where they went after collecting data.
Officials are “taking this very seriously,” according to news media but because “it’s so easy to buy these drones nowadays” pundits added there was little more to be done.
French police, however, expressed concern about flights over sensitive locations, saying these were not the first.
The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were spotted between midnight Monday and 6 am Tuesday morning. Last month similar flights were seen over Elysee Palace, the home of French President Francois Hollande. In October 2014, drones flew over a number of nuclear plants in France as well.
Security personnel in France were unable to determine the source of any of the drones Monday night, nor could they track down the operators.Hana Levi Julian
