Drones Flying Over Paris Spotted Again

PARIS – At least five drones have been spotted flying over various areas of the French capital city of Paris, an incident that had already taken place early on Tuesday, officials reported on Wednesday.

In the recent incident, drones were seen flying Tuesday night over the centric Place de la Concorde (one of the city’s most symbolic squares), in addition to less-crowded areas such as the Saint Ouen’s Manor gates, Clignancourt (in the north of the city), and the Issy-les-Moulineaux commune in the south.

French authorities have started an investigation after the first incident, when the flights were witnessed between midnight and 6 a.m. local time in the vicinity of the Eiffel Tower and the Place de la Bastille, among other emblematic buildings.

The unmanned aircraft were seen by several people who reported the sightings to the police.

No arrests have been made in this ongoing case, in which investigators are trying to determine the motives behind the flights.

These incidents came at a time of high security alert in the French capital, a month and a half after the deadly terrorist attacks on the headquarters of weekly satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Additionally, a drone was sighted hovering over the Elysee Palace on Jan. 20.

In recent months, such devices have also been seen flying over the country’s nuclear power plants, which have a restricted airspace in which air travel is prohibited.
