China Formally Accused Of Using Laser Weapons Near US Military Aircraft In Djibouti


On Thursday, the Pentagon formally complained to the Chinese government, accusing Chinese nationals of pointing lasers at US military aircraft near Djibouti in east Africa multiple times in just the last few weeks. Dana White, a Pentagon spokeswoman, told reporters, "They are very serious incidents ... We have formally démarched the Chinese government and we've requested the Chinese investigate these incidents." Business Insider reports that in the past few weeks, there have been at least 4 incidents of US service members being targeted by military or non-military grade lasers originating near a Chinese military installation in the area. Trey Meeks, a principal at the Asia Group research firm, told The Journal, "These incidents are not surprising as they represent an act just short of war, but indicate gross, intentional negligence, as well as complete disregard for aviation safety and international norms." https://ift.tt/2ju5SBN http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
