US confirms ‘high-altitude object’ taken down over Alaska – video | Global

A US fighter jet has shot down an unidentified high-altitude object that was the size of a small car, the White House said on Friday, although it remained unclear what the purpose or origin of the target was. ‘The president ordered the military to down the object,’ National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said. He added it was unclear where the object came from, but that US authorities expected to recover it from territorial waters. The incident came just days after a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon crossed the continental US and was eventually shot down over the Atlantic Ocean
