Islamic State fighters using drones with IEDs and spy cameras, says Pentagon

Islamic State fighters are posing a growing threat to US and Iraqi forces by deploying small commercial drones armed with improvised explosives devices or spy cameras that can evade detection, according to the Pentagon.

The threat led the Defense Department office charged with monitoring and countering improvised explosive devices to ask that Congress approve shifting $20 million to provide seed money for a counter-drone effort.
