TOKYO (AP) ? A news report says an air traffic controller at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport is facing possible punishment after posting confidential information on his blog, including the flight plan for President Barack Obama’s visit to Japan last year.
Kyodo News agency says the controller also posted the flight plan for an unmanned American reconnaissance plane that was sent to gather data from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. All the images have since been deleted.
It says the transport ministry is investigating and considering disciplinary action. Calls to the ministry were not answered Saturday.
Obama traveled to Japan in November to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Yokohama.
