SHENYANG, China, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- China will build two drone military bases in Liaoning province for marine surveillance purposes, officials said Saturday.

One base will be built in the coastal city of Yingkou to cover the Bohai Sea area and the other will be constructed in Dalian city to cover parts of the Yellow Sea within the province's jurisdiction, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The bases will feature high-definition, remote-sensing marine surveillance cameras to help authorities respond more quickly to emergency situations, the oceanic and fishing department of the provincial government said.

They will also be used to identify illegal land reclamation activities and sand dredging, and monitor marine environments along the coast and on islets.
