Mexican drone crashes in El Paso, Texas during test.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40716199/ns/us_news-securit... /

A small unmanned Mexican drone that crashed into a backyard in El Paso, Texas, was part of a surveillance test by Mexican authorities that ended abruptly when operators lost control of the aircraft, a U.S. security official told NBC News on Friday.

The official did not know whether Mexican law enforcement or military officials were operating the aircraft, but said that the Mexican government was using it for surveillance of the border, NBC News reported.

El Paso Police Detective Mike Baranyay confirmed the Border Patrol handed back the drone to Mexican officials at one of the international bridges. Border Patrol Agent Ramiro Cordero said numerous agencies were involved in returning the aircraft.

I can't wait until every country on earth has a fleet of unmanned drones flying above every other country...spying, shooting, and annoying the entire planet.

1. It's payback -- the US once crashed a V2 missile in Mexico.
Actually, it was fired by captured German rocket scientists, who jokingly congratulated themselved on not only "invading" the US, but also Mexico.
