China, Japan Ramp Up Airspace Dispute

Originally published on Wed November 27, 2013 5:24 am

China announced over the weekend that it had expanded an air-defense zone to cover islands that are claimed by both it and Japan. The U.S., Japan and others said they wouldn't recognize that new zone. The U.S. has since flown two bomber jets through the space without notifying China.
