Spy Planes Detected

MOSCOW -- Russia's air force has detected a large number of foreign intelligence-gathering planes operating near Russian borders, air force chief Colonel General Anatoly Kornukov said Tuesday.

In 1999, Kornukov said, the air force detected some 400 such planes. "Russian air space was violated more than 10 times," he said.
