In its latest provocation, North Korea is jamming signals from the Global Positioning System. The disruptions are affecting air and naval traffic near the demilitarized zone that separates North and South Korea, and are yet another provocation from the unpredictable regime of Kim Jong-un.

South Korean government officials report that the jamming operation, which began in late March, has been targeting aircraft navigation equipment. North Korea has reportedly broadcast a jamming signal on 100 occasions.

A total of 962 planes have been affected by the jamming, as well as nearly 700 fishing vessels. The jamming has also affected cell phone base stations. FULL REPORT
