China continues live-fire military drills around Taiwan following US visit.

TAIWANESE fighter jets were scrambled as 20 Chinese warplanes & 14 warships beared down on the island amid fears of invasion.

China has deployed a massive amount of military equipment to effectively blockade Taiwan during a string of war games.

Taipei has accused Beijing of simulating an attack on the island as "multiple batches" of planes and ships crossed the dividing line in the Taiwan Strait.

"They were judged to be conducting a simulation of an attack on Taiwan's main island," the island's defence ministry said.

And in response Taiwan's military mobilised air and land patrols and deployed land-based missile systems.

Taiwan's army said "20 Communist planes and 14 ships were detected in the waters around Taiwan conducting joint air-sea exercises" at 5pm local time.
