china spy balloon shot down off east coast of united states

China's spy balloon was shot down off the east coast of the United States in the Myrtle Beach area, reported multiple news outlets today.

The spy balloon drifted through the entire continental United States during the past week before finally being shot down as it reached the Atlantic.

Most likely, the ocean was designated as the interception point to reduce the chance of debris falling and injuring people.

There is almost certainly going to be a strong response to China by the United States government. We will keep an eye on this in the coming weeks.
