Flight operations at Imphal's Bir Tikendrajit International Airport were halted on Sunday after an unidentified flying object (UFO) was spotted in the airspace around 2:30pm. Flights were either canceled or rerouted to different destinations, per India Today. This incident coincides with the Manipur government's decision to extend the internet service ban for an additional five days due to ongoing unrest in the state. At least 200 people have been killed since the ethnic clashes began on May 3.
