Taiwan says Liaoning carrier group heading towards Hainan

An anonymous Taiwan defense official told Reuters that Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning and six other warships are now heading towards Hainan island.


The flotilla rounded the south of Taiwan on the night of Dec. 25 and stayed 20 nautical miles outside Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ).

The next morning, Taiwan scrambled two RF-16s along with two F-16s to photograph the ships.
