The Pentagon has confirmed that two US military aircraft defied Beijing by flying over disputed islands in the East China Sea.
In a bitter territorial row, China uses the name Diaoyu for the islands. Rival claimant Japan calls them the Senkaku islands.
It flew two B-52 bombers from a US base in Guam over the disputed area - claimed by both China and Japan. The expanded zone was announced by Beijing on Saturday.
