Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder is holding a news conference Friday amid tensions with China over a suspected spy balloon seen drifting over the U.S. Earlier Friday, Beijing admitted the balloon came from China, claiming it's used for scientific research and "seriously deviated from the scheduled route."
