Watch: China launches missiles in Taiwan drills

China has begun live-fire drills in the region around Taiwan, following a recent visit to the island by US Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

State TV showed numerous missiles being fired as part of the operation. They targeted waters near Taiwan’s coast.

Self-ruled Taiwan says the move, which stops ships and planes from using the space, violates its sovereignty and amounts to a blockade.
