"China's military has installed anti-aircraft guns and other weapons on man-made islands in the South China Sea, according to a U.S. think tank's analysis of satellite imagery published late Wednesday. The Center for Strategic and International Studies' report said China has built 'significant point-defense capabilities' on all seven of its outposts in the Spratly Islands archipelago, a key trade channel where Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines and others claim territory. The claim comes as President-elect Donald Trump has accused Beijing of constructing a 'massive military complex' in the South China Sea, made aggressive comments about China's trade policy and questioned U.S. protocol and policy over China's rival Taiwan."
