Three Al-Jazeera journalists arrested for flying a drone in Paris

The AP reports that three Al-Jazeera journalists have been arrested for illegally flying a drone in Paris Wednesday, after unidentified drones flew over the Eiffel Tower and key Paris landmarks for a second night running. It has further baffled French authorities who are investigating a spate of unidentified flying objects in the Paris skies at a time of high security across the country.
The foreign nationals aged 70, 54 and 36 – who work for the Doha-based international broadcaster – were taken into custody Wednesday afternoon after police spotted a drone flying in the Bois de Boulogne woods in western Paris, said Paris prosecutor’s spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre.
She said is was unclear what the trio were trying to accomplish.
