China aircraft carrier crosses Taiwan Strait amid tension

China’s only aircraft carrier has led several warships across the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan’s defence ministry said.

The Liaoning was returning from drills in the South China Sea.

It did not enter Taiwanese waters but did cross its air defence identification zone (ADIZ), the ministry said.

It is the latest escalation amid tensions between the two neighbours, and Taiwanese authorities have asked the public to remain calm.
In response, Taiwan scrambled jets and boats to “surveil and control” the ships through the 160km-wide (100 mile) Strait, Taiwan defence ministry spokesman Chen Chung-chi told Reuters.
