US warship sails near island claimed by China in South China Sea

A US navy destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of an island claimed by China and two other states in the South China Sea on Saturday, in an effort to counter efforts to limit freedom of navigation, the Pentagon said. China claims most of the South China Sea, through which more than $5tn of world trade is shipped every year. Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Taiwan have rival claims.
