Tuesday China is expected to return a U.S. Navy drone it seized in international waters, two U.S. defense officials told Fox News – a transfer that could help smooth over a significant dispute between the two militaries. The transfer will take place in the “vicinity” of Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea, the body of water where the drone originally was taken.
North Korea has test-fired two ballistic missiles, the latest in a series of rocket launches. US officials said the medium-range missiles, launched off the east coast, flew about 800km (500 miles) before falling into the water. Afterwards, the US called for Pyongyang to refrain from raising tensions.
