A new report says an Air France jet liner passed the area where a North Korean ICBM missile landed just minutes later.
Air France officials say their plane was never in danger of being hit by the missile, adding it constantly analyzes potentially dangerous flyover zones and adapts flight paths when needed.
However, the Pentagon says missile tests from Pyongyang do pose a threat to commercial aircraft and ships in the area.
The Japanese defense ministry says the missile landed around 120 miles from the country’s coast.
