Ingram Publishing/Thinkstock (ROME – 27 December 2015) — Police in Rome have detained two Israeli men after they were caught flying a drone with a high resolution camera over the Vatican Sunday morning.
Roman police were patrolling the area near the Vatican for illegal street vendors when they spotted a small aircraft flying over the Tiber River and St. Peter’s Square.
The police searched for the pilot, locating two men, apparently tourists, on a bridge near St. Peter’s. One was holding the remote control for the drone.
The equipment, including the drone with its images were seized and the men are currently being questioned.
Police say the two will be charged by the judicial authorities for violation of Italy’s Code of Navigation.
