Beijing simulates attack on Taiwan as Chinese drills extend to third day


A large number of Chinese military planes and ships crossed half of the Taiwan Strait on Saturday, in a simulated land strike on the self-governing island that Beijing claims as its own.

The exercises took place on the third day of a series of four-day military exercises promised by the Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army, following a visit by the Speaker of the United States House, Nancy Pelosi, in Taipei earlier this week.
