Chinese jets intercept US aircraft over East China Sea, US says

Two Chinese Sukhoi Su-30 jets have conducted an "unprofessional" intercept of a US aircraft, the US military said.

The US sniffer plane was on a mission to detect radiation in international airspace over the East China Sea.

The aircraft has previously been used to detect evidence of possible nuclear tests by North Korea.
China's suspicion of US activity near the resource-rich international waters off its coast has repeatedly led to tensions between the two countries.

"The issue is being addressed with China through appropriate diplomatic and military channels," Air Force spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lori Hodge said.
