US military aircraft flies over Taiwan Strait

A US military plane flew over the Taiwan Strait yesterday, the island’s government said, just days after one of its navy ships sailed through the waters and the latest arms sale between Washington and Taipei. Taiwan’s defence ministry said in a statement that the transport aircraft flew south along the “median line” of the narrow strait, a traditionally respected maritime line dividing self-ruled Taiwan and mainland China, in a move likely to provoke Beijing. “Nothing unusual” occurred, the statement added.
