South Korea Flights See Possible GPS Signal Jamming From North

Some South Korean flights are experiencing jamming in their global positioning system signals, with the source believed to originate in North Korea, Lee Kyung Oh, an official at the South’s Korea Communications Commission, said by phone from Seoul today.

The problem has been seen since April 28, Lee said. All South Korean flights are operating as usual and there have been no reports of damage as a result of the jamming, he said.
