Minnie Chan is a Hong Kong News Awards-winning journalist focusing on China defence stories. Her coverage of the US EP-3 spy plane crash with a PLA J-8 in 2001 near SCS opened her door to the military world. Since then, she has made several scoops relating to China’s military development.

The official PLA Daily ran a front-page article on Wednesday urging military officials to vacate properties they were no longer entitled to.

The Japanese military launched amphibious landing drills involving 34,000 troops in Okinawa yesterday, as Tokyo denied interfering with Chinese naval exercises in the western Pacific.
