Beijing says Indian drone crashed after ‘invading’ airspace

An Indian drone has “invaded” Chinese airspace and crashed, China’s Defense Ministry said Thursday, months after the neighbors ended one of their worst border standoffs in decades, AFP reported. “The Indian move violated China’s territorial sovereignty. We strongly express our dissatisfaction and opposition,” deputy director of the army’s Western Theater Combat Bureau, Zhang Shuili, said. It was not clear when or where the incident happened. Zhang said Chinese border troops “took a professional and responsible attitude” and carried out identification verification of the device.
