Are we drifting towards a new cold war?
Following the Chinese spy balloon saga, relations between the U.S. and China are at an all-time low
The Chinese spy balloon saga is continuing to widen.
The device, which was about 200 feet tall, was shot down by a fighter jet over the South Carolina coast.
Now, U.S. officials believe it is part of a wider fleet spanning five continents as Secretary of State Antony Blinken warns America was not the only target.
Washington says the suspected surveillance project was being operated from China’s coastal Hainan province and observed numerous countries including Japan, India, Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Burrowing badgers wreak havoc on Dutch railway tracks
Authorities are needing to cancel services because of the severity of the damage
The Netherlands is experiencing a bad case of burrowing badgers.
The cute, fury critters are tunnelling below railway tracks and are wreaking havoc on train services across the country.
In fact, it’s so getting bad, authorities are being forced to cancel services.
Trains in the north and south are the worst affected, with some lines halted for at least a week.
The route between Den Bosch and Boxtel in the south was closed on Tuesday after the mammals dug under the tracks.
Officials are unsure how long the problem will continue as badgers are a protected species.
The CEO of ProRail, the company that maintains the Dutch rail network, says it is the second time in a week that services have been stopped because of badger activity.
