Serbia: 2 jets nearly collided over Belgrade

Serbian air traffic authorities say two passenger jets nearly collided over Belgrade this week.
The Directorate for Civil Aviation says an Air France Airbus A318 and an Israeli El Al Boeing 777 missed each other Monday after the French airliner stopped its descent under orders from Serbian air controllers.
The statement says an investigation has shown that the French jet was on an unauthorized flight course. It says the French jet was instructed to fly at 35,000 feet (10,650 meters) but was 300 feet (91 meters) further down toward the Israeli jet, which was flying at 34,000 feet (10,346 meters).
The Airbus was on its way from Paris to Sofia, Bulgaria, and the El Al jet was flying from Tel Aviv to New York.
