China flies dozens of warplanes near Taiwan


China launched 39 aircraft, mostly fighter jets, near Taiwan Sunday — the largest show of force in months.

The launch came the same day the U.S. Navy sailed two aircraft carriers along with a pair of amphibious assault ships alongside allies in the Philippine Sea. 

It’s not clear what might have prompted the escalation, but China did something similar in early October during similar U.S. Navy operations.
