Chinese Sailors in Underwear Harass United States Ship

Five Chinese vessels sailed to within twenty-five feet of an American surveillance ship in international waters, and the sailors aboard those ships engaged in actions the Pentagon calls illegal, unprofessional, and dangerous. The Chinese sailors waves flags, dropped pieces of wood in the path of the American ship, and tried to hook cables towing the ship’s sonar equipment. The crew of the American ship responded by spraying the Chinese sailors with a fires hose. In response, the Chinese sailors… stripped to their underwear.
