China accosts US plane flying over disputed sea
MetadataShow full item record
A US surveillance plane was warned eight times by the Chinese Navy against flying over the contested West Philippine Sea on Wednesday, CNN Philippines said in an exclusive report. A CNN team led by senior correspondent Jim Sciutto was on board on the P8-A Poseidon, Washington's most advanced surveillance aircraft, when it took off from Clark Air Base in Pampanga. China's alarming creation of entirely new territory in the South China Sea is one part of a broader military push that some fear is intended to challenge US dominance in the region.
