Djibouti: Chinese Military Lasers Injure US Military Pilots In Africa

Chinese Military Lasers Injure US Military Pilots In Africa

(CNN) Chinese personnel at the country's first overseas military base in Djibouti have been using lasers to interfere with US military aircraft at a nearby American base, activity that has resulted in injuries to US pilots and prompted the US to launch a formal diplomatic protest with Beijing, two military officials told CNN. The US issued a notice to airmen "to exercise caution when flying in certain areas in Djibouti," which "was issued due to lasers being directed at US aircraft on a small number of separate occasions over the last few weeks," according to the notice obtained by CNN. "During one incident, there were two minor eye injuries of aircrew flying in a C-130 that resulted from exposure to military-grade laser beams, which were reported to have originated from the nearby Chinese base," the notice said.

An All Nippon Airways plane from western Japan bound for Tokyo’s Haneda Airport had to turn back to Fukuoka Airport for an emergency landing. Fukuoka Airport officials say crew on board the Boeing 767 reported engine trouble shortly after 9:50 a.m. Thursday Japan time. The aircraft made an emergency landing at 10:15 a.m. It then moved over the runway on its own power and stopped on the taxiway. Fire engines stood by and the runway was closed for about half an hour. Transport ministry officials say no injuries have been reported among the 270 passengers and eight crew members on board. All Nippon Airways says the aircraft’s cockpit indicators showed a temperature surge in the right engine, as the plane was ascending after takeoff. The pilots shut down the engine and headed back to Fukuoka.
