From hand-held copters that zoom around the living room to high-speed craft offering the sensation of flying over the countryside, drones have won over legions of fans – and are proving a growing challenge for security authorities.The latest was on Aug. 4 when two explosive-laden drones were allegedly used in an attempt to kill Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro as he gave a speech in Caracas.Other high-profile scares saw a drone crashing onto a stage near German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2013, and two years later, the White House went on lockdown after a drone foiled radar systems and landed on the lawn.Daesh (ISIS) militants have used civilian drones to track Iraqi army movements, while Russia reported in January that drones equipped with explosives had attacked its forces stationed in Syria.Starting next year, any drone weighing more than 800 grams must be registered with French authorities.
