Saucers Sighted In France And Italy

AVIGNON, France (INS) -- "Flying saucers" are reported to have been sighted again in France and in Italy.

Two French Air Force jet planes chased an object described as "a white disc giving out white, red and violet light," but it moved away before the pilots could identify it.

In Italy, a motorist near Modena said he saw an incandescent cigar-shaped object fly past at tremendous speed. A 13-year-old boy reported he saw an object over the city at Florence "whirling like a top."

A silvery object reportedly flew at great speed over Luino, near the Swiss border at 1000 feet altitude. Many witnesses reported it made no noise and left no vapor trail.
