2 US B-52 bombers flew near China-built artificial islands: Pentagon
November 13 , 2015
Two American B-52 bombers flew close to the artificial islands built by China in the South China Sea this week, the Pentagon revealed.
The strategic bombers were contacted by Chinese ground controllers, but they continued their mission, it said.
This comes before US President Barack Obama’s visit to the region for the Asia-Pacific summits next week.
In recent months, the US has asserted its freedom of overflight and navigation in the area.
