China Scrambled Jets in Response to 'Dangerous' Japanese Air Intrusion

BEIJING — China said on Sunday it scrambled jets in the East China Sea after Japanese aircraft intruded into its air defense zone and carried out "dangerous actions" during a joint maritime exercise with Russia.

The Defense Ministry said on its website that the Japanese aircraft had entered the zone on Saturday despite "no fly" notices issued before the exercises. China declared the zone last year despite protests by Japan and the United States.
