Crashed US drone
found in Masbate

MANILA – A US drone believed to be used for reconnaissance was recovered yesterday in the waters off the central Philippines, police and naval authorities said.

Fishermen found the 3.65 meter (12-foot) drone floating off Masbate island and dragged it to shore, said provincial police chief, Senior Supt. Heriberto Olitoquit.

They initially thought they had hauled in a bomb and alerted police, Olitoquit said. “A technical evaluation determined that the object is one unmanned aerial vehicle,” he told reporters.
