China sends missiles to contested South China Sea island: Fox News
The Chinese military has deployed an advanced surface-to-air missile system to one of its contested islands in the South China Sea, Fox News reported on Tuesday, citing civilian satellite imagery. Woody Island is also claimed by Taiwan and Vietnam. Bill Urban, a Pentagon spokesman, said: "While I cannot comment on matters related to intelligence, we do watch these matters very closely." The report comes as U.S. President Barack Obama and leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations concluded a summit in California.
