DUBAI, United Arab Emirates
An adviser to Dubai's ruler says the United Arab Emirates intends to develop drone technology for government services and has launched a $1 million international competition for the best innovative use of unmanned aircraft to help improve the lives of people.
Raford says the UAE hopes to see drones in the sky by early next year.
