China sent 18 warplanes including fighters and bombers into Taiwan's air defence zone on Friday, the island's government said, in the second-largest one-day incursion this year.

Taiwan lives under the constant threat of invasion by Beijing, which sees the self-ruled democratic island as part of its territory to be retaken one day, by force if necessary.
