South China Sea: US sails warship near disputed islands

China says the US has committed an "illegal" act in sailing a navy warship near islands it claims in the South China Sea.
Paracel Islands

The USS Decatur passed near disputed islands earlier on Friday in what the US says was "a routine, lawful manner".

It went close to the Paracel Islands, claimed by China but also by Taiwan and Vietnam.

China's defence ministry said two of its warships had warned the USS Decatur to leave the area.

The ministry, which called the move "intentionally provocative", said it had lodged a protest with the US.

It accused the US of being "motivated by a desire to see the world in chaos".
