TOKYO — U.S. high-altitude reconnaissance planes violated North Korean airspace on spy flights more than 130 times in 1987, Pyongyang's official news agency said Tuesday.

The Korean Central News Agency, monitored in Tokyo, said the latest intrusion came when an SR-71 spy plane flew deep into North Korea's airspace above its territorial waters east of Kosong for three minutes Tuesday.

It said the United States had "committed such aerial espionage against (North Korea) on nine occasions in December and on more than 130 occasions this year."
