China Seizes US Navy Underwater Drone in South China Sea

The Chinese Navy has seized a U.S. naval underwater drone from international waters in the South China Sea.

The U.S. has demanded the unmanned vehicle, which is used to measure water temperature and salinity levels, be returned after it was taken about 50 miles off the western coast of the Philippines.

The Chinese seized the drone Thursday just before a U.S. Navy oceanographic survey ship was set to retrieve it.
