Taiwan shoots down Chinese drone

Taiwan’s military has shot down a suspected Chinese drone that entered its airspace over Kinmen island.

The Taiwanese army said an unidentified commercial drone equipped with cameras intruded into restricted airspace over the waters around Shihyu, a Taiwan-controlled islet less than 4km from Chinese territory.

It comes one day after Taiwan fired warning shots for the first time to drive back drones that flew over its outlying islands near China.

Taiwan’s defence ministry said the three drones were seen flying back towards the Chinese mainland.
