Taiwan scrambles jets to warn Chinese aircraft over Taiwan Strait

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwanese fighter jets scrambled on Monday to intercept and warn away Chinese air force aircraft which briefly crossed a maritime border in the sensitive Taiwan Strait that separates the two, Taiwan’s Defence Ministry said.

It was the second time in two days that Taiwan’s air force has scrambled to intercept Chinese aircraft flying near the island that Beijing claims as its own.
