China Accuses US of Provocation

China accused the US of "serious provocation" after it flew B-52 bombers near one of the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. Chinese military personnel were put on "high alert" during the incident on 10 December, and issued warnings to leave. The Pentagon said it was looking into the complaint, BBC reported.
China claims large swaths of the South China Sea but is in territorial dispute with a host of regional neighbors.
In October, China rebuked the US after a destroyer sailed close to a reef. On Saturday, a statement from China's Defense Ministry accused the US of deliberately raising tensions in the area with the B-52 over-flight of the disputed Spratly Islands, which it calls Nansha.
