US 'to shoot down spy satellite'

The US military is planning to shoot down a broken spy satellite due to crash land on Earth in the next few weeks, US news agency AP reports.

Pentagon officials are quoted as saying they want to fire a missile from a US Navy ship to destroy the satellite before it enters the atmosphere.

Last month, officials said the satellite had lost power and could contain hazardous materials.

The Pentagon is due to hold a briefing on the subject later.
