North Korea Missile Launch Photos Tampered With, Scientist Says


Singapore Airlines (SINGF) said its flights don't travel "in the vicinity of the missile trajectory" because of the route change it made to avoid the northern part of the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan. It hadn't previously announced the changes before this week.

North Korea said last week it had tested its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile yet, which was capable of reaching the United States.

"At dawn, North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile to the East from the environs of Pyongyang", according to the chiefs of staff of South Korea. Pyongyang said the projectile flew as high as 4,475 kilometers (2,800 miles) before plummeting down into waters off the western coast of Japan.

Shopping centre giants Hammerson and Intu to merge
The groups plan to slash costs, offload at least £2bn worth of assets and target high growth markets such as Spain and Ireland. Shares in Hammerson were down 1.45% to 526.75p on Wednesday morning, while Intu's were up 20% to 238.54p by 1100 GMT.

Four minutes later another Korean Air plane on a Los Angeles-Incheon flight also reported the same sighting to Japanese control, he said.

The missile was far from the plane, and operation was unaffected, Cathay said, adding that it had informed other carriers and relevant authorities.

The closest shave was on Nov 29, where crew on at least three commercial flights from Korean Air and Cathay Pacific reportedly saw the North Korean missile in the air before it blew up near their location.

Huawei P11 Leak Shows Unique Trio-Camera Setup
There are four different parts of the "PCE-series" ad, each featuring a different aspect of the device's cameras and software. The P11 is likely to be one of 2018's hottest smartphones, with a launch date expected around MWC in February.

"We do take the matter seriously and are monitoring the situation very closely and will reroute our flight paths where necessary", a Cathay Pacific spokesperson added.

The UN's International Civil Aviation Organization states that nations have a "responsibility to issue risk advisories regarding any threats to the safety of civilian aircraft operating in their airspace". Prior to last week's ballistic missile launch, the US spotted North Korea's military making preparations.

North Korea routinely fails to follow that rule and has ignored several letters from the ICAO urging it to inform airline officials of its plan to launch missiles.
