Drones were sighted again Tuesday night near Paris landmarks. Authorities arrested three journalists but said there is no known connection.By Kate Grumke | February 25, 2015
Paris authorities have arrested three Al Jazeera journalists for flying a drone over the city, though the media outlet says its employees were simply trying to cover a rash of other drones flying illegally.
Drones like these need authorization to fly over Paris, but on Monday and Tuesday night, unauthorized drones were spotted several times flying over major landmarks. The drone sightings put authorities on edge in a city where security is already heightened following the Charlie Hebdo attacks. (Video via YouTube / stalin velasquez)
