South Korea’s military has apologized for failing to shoot down five drones that North Korea sent over their shared border on Monday.

South Korea fired warning shots, and sent attack and non-attack helicopters to shoot down the planes, one of which flew near the capital, Seoul.

Despite the five-hour manhunt, all the drones were reported to have returned to North Korea.

The South Korean president said the incident showed that the military’s readiness “was greatly deficient”.
