Latest/ The US military shoots down China's spy balloon
The United States has shot down a Chinese spy balloon that flew across America last week.
The balloon was first spotted over the US a few days ago, according to the Pentagon, but officials deemed it too dangerous to bring down to the ground.
US officials say the balloon was being used for surveillance, rejecting China's claim that it was a civilian research plane.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed a trip to China in response.
Meanwhile, another Chinese spy balloon has been spotted over Latin America, the Pentagon said Friday evening.
