Australia accuses China of shining laser at warplane

The Australian defence ministry has accused a Chinese navy ship of shining a "military grade" laser towards one of its warplanes. The Chinese vessel was sailing in the Arafura Sea off northern Australia when the incident happened on Thursday. "Acts like this have the potential to endanger lives. We strongly condemn unprofessional and unsafe military conduct," the ministry said. The Chinese authorities have yet to comment.
