Two US Navy destroyers challenged China's excessive maritime claims in the South China Sea Monday, angering Beijing.

The guided-missile destroyers USS Preble and USS Chung-Hoon conducted a freedom-of-navigation operation, sailing within 12 nautical miles of two Chinese-occupied reefs in the Spratly Islands, the US Navy 7th Fleet spokesman Commander Clay Doss told Reuters. https://www.businessinsider.com/the-us-just-sent-2-us-destroyers-to-check-china-in-the-south-china-sea-2019-5
