    There have been no reports of injuries or damage caused by the remnants of Chinese Long March-5B carrier rocket, said Hua Chunying, spokesperson of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, responding to Western media claims that the rocket could cause damage when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

    The remnants of the rocket re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere at 10:24 a.m. (0224 GMT) on Sunday, with most of the debris burning up and the rest landing in the Indian Ocean at a location near 72.47 degrees east longitude, 2.65 degrees north latitude, according to the China Manned Space Engineering Office.
