French Air Force turns to eagles to fight terror drone threat

The French Air Force is training up a new type of special force in the fight against armed drones that could be used in a terrorist attack: eagles.

L’armée de l’air considers rogue drones “a credible threat for a terrorist mode of action on our national territory just as they do for external operations.”

After a series of mysterious and worrying overlights of nuclear power stations by unmanned drones, the government called on experts to swiftly come up with a way of neutralising them.
