South Korea is set to expand its air defence zone to partially overlap China's recently enlarged airspace, South Korean officials have said. Seoul's defence ministry said on Sunday that the expansion, which covers an extra 66,480 square kilometres, would include two territorial islands to its south, and a submerged rock also claimed by China.
