Tuesday’s Sankei front-paged a report on an announcement on Monday by the Ministry of Defense that eight Chinese military aircraft, including six H-6 strategic bombers, were spotted flying over the Tsushima Strait on Monday and that Japan scrambled fighters against them. The Chinese aircraft entered Japan’s air defense identification zone but did not violate Japan’s airspace. Yomiuri and Nikkei ran similar inside-page reports.
