China Passenger Jet in Near-Miss in North Korean Missile Test Zone

An aircraft with 202 people on board had a narrow escape after it passed through a North Korean missile test zone, it has been claimed.

Kim Min-seok, a South Korean defence ministry spokesman, said that the China Southern Airlines passenger jet travelling from Tokyo to Shenyang at an altitude of six miles flew through an area five minutes after the rocket had passed through it. The rocket landed in water.

"It was a very dangerous situation," Kim said. "North Korea's provocative actions violate international navigation laws and pose a great threat to the safety of civilians."
