Flying saucers above Peshawar, Pakistan, 1953:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Le Figaro, France, on December 23, 1953.


Two brilliant objects fling at an altitude of more than 4,700 meters were seen over Peshawar on the night of December 21. The objects, coming from the southeast and thought to be flying saucers, disappeared in the direction of Afghanistan. Witnesses who saw the saucers said they emitted red and green flashes.

Note: according to CIA FBIS report 00-W-29903, the Salonica newspaper Makedoia in its 23 December edition reported substantially the same facts on this incident and added that in January 1953 similar objects were seen over Peshawar, headed over the Khyber pass.
