North Korea is developing new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with enhanced surveillance and flight capabilities, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said Sunday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A new drone, which is larger than those used previously is currently undergoing flight testing, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing an official from Seoul.

"The North is building larger drones with greater range and with the capability to be flown remotely by flight controllers," the official told the news outlet, adding that Seoul had detected a number of flight tests this year.
