China warns it will do aposeverythingapos to defend its sovereignty as it holds drills in Taiwan Strait

China warns it will do 'everything' to defend its sovereignty as it holds drills in Taiwan StraitA senior Chinese official has warned that Beijing would do "everything" to defend its sovereignty as China began live-fire drills in the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday. The comments came as China was accused of "sabre rattling" by Taiwan after it launched a military exercise which is being seen as a warning to the United States over its involvement in the self-ruled island. The drills, which began at 8am (00.00 GMT), are also being viewed as a show of force against what Beijing views as moves by Taiwan towards formal independence. Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the US, on Tuesday reiterated Beijing's long-held view that Taiwan will eventually be reunited with the mainland, saying that China hoped for "peaceful reunification". "But if someone tries to separate Taiwan from China, we will do everything that is possible to defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity," he added, as he answered questions at an event at Harvard University, according to China Review News Agency. The Chinese military provided few details about the drills, which are taking place off the south-eastern Chinese city of Quanzhou, between two groups of islands that are controlled by Taiwan, but very close to China.

Taiwan's defence ministry said the drills only involved land-based artillery conducting "routine" shooting practice. A spokesman said China has been engaged in "cheap verbal intimidation and sabre rattling" as it sought to undermine the "morale" of the Taiwanese people. Tensions between Beijing and Taipei have escalated in recent weeks, with officials sparring over comments from William Lai, Taiwan's prime minister, that he was a “Taiwan independence worker”. Beijing has also become alarmed at moves by the US to forge

Woman killed after jet engine fails on New York-Dallas flightCatastrophic engine failure on a Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas killed a mother-of-two and forced an emergency landing Tuesday, the first fatal incident in US commercial aviation for nearly a decade. The Boeing 737-700 took off without incident but minutes into the flight, passengers heard an explosion in the left engine, which sent shrapnel flying through the window, shattering the glass and leading oxygen masks to drop, witnesses said.
