Air France claims that an intercontinental ballistic missile fired into airspace by North Korea came as close as 100 kilometers to a Boeing 777 operated by the carrier. Although Air France claims that the flight was not in danger from the missile, it will nevertheless be increasing the boundaries of its no-fly zone around North Korea.
“The information available to Air France at this stage indicates that the missile was damaged at sea more than 100km from the trajectory of its aircraft,” said Air France officials.
