Lasers Pointed at 11 Airliners

The Federal Aviation Administration reports that eleven commercial flights reported lasers pointed at them Wednesday night as they flew over New Jersey.
About half of the incidents were close to Newark Liberty International Airport, while the others occurred elsewhere in New Jersey -- from Robbinsville, near the Pennsylvania border, to Ocean City, along the Atlantic Ocean in the southeast corner of the state. Three American Airlines planes were among those affected, as were two from JetBlue and one each from United, Delta and Republic. The government has been trying to stop such attacks, with the FBI taking the lead in going after those responsible.
