US accuses China fighter of reckless mid-air intercept


A Chinese fighter came perilously close to a US military patrol plane over international waters east of China's Hainan Island.

Pentagon has said Spokesman John Kirby said that the US had protested to the Chinese military over the mid-air intercept, calling the fighter pilot's actions "unsafe and unprofessional".

He said that the Chinese aircraft came within 10 metres of the US Navy plane.
