BBC NEWS/Taiwan says dozens of Chinese military jets have flown into its air defence zone in the last two days – the largest incursion by Beijing to date.

Taiwan’s defence ministry said 38 planes, including nuclear-capable bombers, entered the area in two waves on Friday.

A further 20 planes flew through on Saturday, the ministry said.

China sees democratic Taiwan as a breakaway province, but Taiwan sees itself as a sovereign state.

Taiwan has been complaining for more than a year about repeated missions by China’s air force near the island.
