Drone crash grounds US surveillance drones on the Canadian border

David Pugliese, reporting in the Ottawa Citizen, says that a drone operated by US  Customs and Border Protection has crashed off San Diego. Apparently the crash grounded the entire fleet of surveillance drones that monitor both the Mexican and Canadian borders of the US. Presumably the drone was a Predator drone, made by General Atomics.

A description of the drone surveillance programme along the US border with Canada has been posted on the blog previously.
