Taiwan conducts a live fire military drill simulating a Chinese invasion of a major military base on the Island. The 45-minute exercise dispatched fighter jets, attack helicopters, and tanks. Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou reviewed the drill. He said that Taiwan will develop a strategic defence plan in the next four years, with plans to buy needed weapons from overseas. Tensions have been high between China and Taiwan since a civil war in 1949 split the two nations. Sarah Sheffer, Reuters
