China warns foreign military jets in air zone, paper says

China’s air force dispatched several aircraft to monitor, identify and issue warnings to foreign military planes flying through its self-declared air defense identification zone over the East China Sea, Beijing Youth Daily reported Friday, citing the Ministry of Defense. An air force spokesman said the move complied with international practice, adding that no international civilian flights through the area have been affected since the Chinese government declared the zone in November, the report said.
