Mystery UAVs over Paris

Hi All,

 

This story has got me quite worried. We all know how useful UAVs are to the military but now that camera-equipped remote-control aerial drones like quadcopters are readily available on the highstreet and online for very reasonable prices, it seems only a matter of time before some terrorist group makes use of them.

The report doesn't say that this is terrorist-related but it sure seems suspiciously like terrorists as they are overflying places like the US embassy in Paris and various nuclear powerstations across France. Groups like Al Queda and Islamic State have shown that they can pull off sophisticated attacks, and if they now have the home-brew equivalent of UAVs, I think that is pretty scary.
