Unidentified Object Shot Down After Chinese Balloon Incident


On Friday, a US fighter jet shot down an unidentified car sized object over Alaska.

At 40,000 feet, the object was a threat to civilians. However its purpose and origin are still unknown.

The incident has taken place six days after a Chinese spy balloon was shot down by the US.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said:  "The president ordered the military to down the object."

President Joe Biden told the reporters that the shot down "was a success."

Kirby stated that the object was much smaller than the Chinese balloon downed last week.

He said It was "roughly the size of a small car. "We do not know who owns it, whether state owned or corporate owned."

The spy balloon incident has sparked a fresh row of diplomatic tussle between the US and China.
