China - U.S.
NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports China continues to hold 24 U.S. service men and women and their surveillance plane, which was damaged in a mid-air collision with a Chinese jet fighter on Sunday. Today, the United States issued a conciliatory statement expressing regret that a Chinese pilot was apparently killed in the accident. But the U.S. stopped short of an apology. It says the U.S. crew was not to blame for the collision.
