The United States military shot down a high-altitude balloon, which the government in Washington said was Chinese, according to several media outlets.
The ballon was first seen on Wednesday over Billings, Montana and was ultimately shot down once it drifted off the East Coast, CNN reported, citing a US official.
China’s Foreign Ministry denied the accusations, saying that the object was a civilian weather research “airship” and that it was blown off course.
