CNN: Suspected Chinese lasers target US aircraft over the Pacific, US military source says

(CNN)Lasers have been used to target US aerial operations in the Pacific, with 20 incidents recorded since September of last year, according to a US military official.

The military spokeswoman, who requested not to be named, told CNN that lasers had been flashed at US aircraft, and that the sources of these flashes are suspected to be Chinese.

The latest incident occurred within the last two weeks, the official said.

None of the incidents have resulted in any medical complaints or injuries, the spokeswoman said. The attacks appear similar to incidents that occurred in the East African country of Djibouti earlier in the year, when US military airmen were injured by lasers which the US military said originated from a nearby Chinese military base.

Different laws for Chinese and the rest of the world.

Can only be a matter of time until Democrats come out to support the rights of Chinese to blind and endanger people with lasers. It's a human right they'll scream and Trump is a Nazi
