North Korea sent out a series of jamming signals bringing down a U.S. reconnaissance plane during major military exercises in March, a South Korea political aide said Friday.

According to Agence France-Presse Seoul's defense ministry says the jamming threw the aircraft's GPS offline as it was taking part in the U.S.–South Korea "Key Resolve" military drills (via Stars and Stripes).

I would not put too much weight upon this story.
The news is always reported in a way to form a desired image or opinion.
I'm sure if this did actually happen, that it was well within the rights for doing so (e.g. possibly entering N-Korea's air space etc.)
As this happened in March, I doubt there will be any kind of aftermath.
Besides, the US has Iran in their sights.

No U.S. plane forced down by North Korea jamming: source
news.yahoo.com...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. defense official denied on Saturday that a military reconnaissance plane was forced to make an emergency landing in March because of North Korean GPS jamming, as reported by a South Korean newspaper. "We have no indication that any aircraft at the time of, or in the vicinity of, this alleged incident was forced to land on an emergency basis," the defense official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The Chosun Ilbo newspaper, quoting a South Korean Defense Ministry report, said on Friday the U.S. aircraft had been involved in military exercises. It said the North Korean jamming signals also disrupted the global positioning system (GPS) devices of coastal patrol boats and speed boats of the South Korean Navy. Several civilian aircraft were affected. There are about 28,000 U.S. troops based in South Korea and the U.S. and South Korean militaries hold regular joint drills. The two Koreas are still technically at war, having only signed a truce, not a peace treaty, to end the 1950-53 Korean War. (Reporting by Phil Stewart)
