France has been in a high state of preparedness since the Charlie Hebdo incident and since a couple of days a “terror drone” controller has been trespassing various laws in France which forbid the use of drones in public places.
The Lepoint has reported that 3 Al-Jazeera TV journalists have been arrested in Paris. The Al-Jazeera team was using a drone.
The team members all had their task. The first was piloting the drone, the second was filming and the third was watching.
There is so far no official suggestion the journalists are linked to a series of night-time drone sightings over the city this week.
