Chinese planes have allegedly entered disputed airspace over disputed islands in the East China Sea.

Reports suggest that Japan scrambled eight F-15 jets in retaliation. It is unclear what aircraft China used.

China's Foreign Ministry has said Japan should stop entering the disputed territory. China and Japan both claim ownership over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.
