The Chinese government has admitted a balloon spotted over Latin America on Friday is from China - but claimed it is intended for civilian use.
Foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said the aircraft had deviated from its route, having been blown off course.
A similar balloon was shot down in US airspace by military jets on Saturday amid allegations that it was being used for surveillance.
