Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, November 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed more than 190 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK with the mobilization of strategic and tactical reconnaissance planes on different missions in October, according to military sources. On October 30 a U-2 high-altitude strategic reconnaissance plane spied on strategic objects of the DPRK, flying for long hours in the sky over Tokjok Islet, Phochon and Sokcho. And RC-135 strategic reconnaissance planes made shuttle flights in the sky over the east of Paeka Islet, Yangphyong and Yangyang on October 13, 14 and 19 to spy on objects in the depth of the DPRK.
    An E-3 commanding plane perpetrated espionage on the forefront areas of the DPRK on Oct. 13, 14 and 19 while commanding fighter planes mobilized in various war games including aerial warfare exercise and drill of catching aerial targets in the sky over Kumsan, Ronsan, Ansong and Koesan. The cases of the aerial espionage by strategic reconnaissance planes, electronic reconnaissance planes and commanding planes numbered 30 or more in October.
    Meanwhile, RC-12, RC-7B and other tactical reconnaissance planes made sorties day and night to spy on military objects of the DPRK side in the sky over the areas along the Military Demarcation Line. The planes numbered 8 on October 9, 7 every day on October 5, 18, 25 and 28 and 6 every day on October 19 and 22.
    They made 10 more espionage flights in October than in September. This timed to coincide with their massive shipment of aggression forces in and around south Korea, and this indicates how recklessly they are running about to stifle the DPRK by military force
