MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French police arrested a couple for flying an unmanned vehicle over the Palace of Versailles, Europe 1 radio reported Monday.
Small civilian drones are banned from French urban areas and nuclear facilities, which are protected by a no-fly zone.
In recent months, Paris police reportedly stated that an array of unidentified drones had been flying over the French capital. The vehicles were spotted near the US embassy building, which is located on the same street as the French president's palace, the Eiffel Tower and the Place de la Concorde.
Earlier this month, police arrested four German journalists for attempting to launch a drone in Paris. The incident came days after three Al Jazeera journalists were detained for allegedly flying an unmanned vehicle.
