China Demands Flights Stop

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on China's demand that the United States end all reconnaissance flights over its waters -- even those in international airspace. Experts say the Chinese have been growing increasingly aggressive in their attempts to interfere with U.S. surveillance flights, culminating in the current detaining of the crew of the Navy spy plane that was forced to make an emergency landing after colliding with a Chinese fighter jet.
