U.S. Navy Warship has “Unsafe” Encounter with Chinese Ship

A U.S. Navy cruiser reportedly had an “unsafe” encounter with a Chinese ship Sunday while in the South China Sea.

Defense officials say that the USS Decatur passed within 12 nautical miles of two reefs in the Spratly Islands, which the Chinese consider sovereign territory. The Chinese vessel reportedly came within 45 yards of the ship, which was conducting a freedom of navigation operation.
