Indian drone crashes across China border

An Indian drone has "invaded" China's airspace and crashed, Chinese state media said Thursday, months after the neighbors ended one of their worst border standoffs in decades."The Indian move violated China's territorial sovereignty. We strongly express our dissatisfaction and opposition," Xinhua news agency cited the deputy director of the army's western theatre combat bureau, Zhang Shuili, as saying.

Zhang did not give details about when or where the incident happened. Chinese border troops "took a professional and responsible attitude" and carried out identification verification of the device, Zhang added. "We will earnestly fulfill our mission of duty and firmly defend the sovereignty and security of our country," he added.
