Expert says photos prove UFOs exist

Mexican air force pilots filmed 11 bright, rapidly moving objects in the skies that an expert said proved the existence of UFOs, but defense officials said Wednesday no conclusions had been reached about the objects’ origins.

A videotape aired Monday on national television showed a series of brilliant objects flying at more than 11,480 feet over southern Campeche state. The tape was filmed March 5 by air force pilots using a video camera equipped with an infrared lens.

Defense Secretary Gen. Ricardo Vega Garcia gave the videotape to UFO specialist Jaime Maussan, who claimed Tuesday the videotape was evidence that flying saucers exist.

“Hundreds of videos (of UFOs) exist, but none had the backing of the armed forces of any country,” he said.

N. Korea proposes high-level military talks

North Korea on Wednesday suggested holding high-level military talks with South Korea on May 26 aimed at reducing tension centered on the international standoff about the communist state’s nuclear weapons development.

In a telephone message, the North suggested that officials meet on the border Friday to work out the proposed high-level talks, the South’s Defense Ministry said.

The South did not have an immediate response.
