U.S. Expelled Two Chinese Diplomats after Unauthorized Entry into SEAL Team 6 Headquarters

U.S. Expelled Two Chinese Diplomats after Unauthorized Entry into SEAL Team 6 HeadquartersThe U.S. secretly expelled two Chinese diplomats in September after entering a Virginia military base that houses the headquarters of SEAL Team 6, the New York Times reported Tuesday.The diplomats, along with their wives, were detained after the four drove through the outer perimeter of the Dam Neck Annex of Naval Air Station Oceana, south of Virginia Beach. They ignored orders from guards to turn back and were only stopped by fire trucks that were driven to block their path, according to the Times. One of the men is allegedly an intelligence operative with diplomatic cover.The U.S. has refused to comment on the incident or even confirm or deny that it took place. China, however, acknowledged on Monday that the two diplomats were expelled."The US accusation on our officials is completely inconsistent with the truth," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, who was formerly stationed at the country's embassy in Washington. "We urge the U.S. to correct its mistake, withdraw this decision and protect Chinese diplomats’ legitimate rights and interests according to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations."Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Uriah Orland told the Times he had no further information about the incident. "We take the security of all our installations very seriously," Orland said.The news comes at a time of escalated tensions between the U.S. and China. The two countries are currently locked in a trade war, and President Trump is currently pushing for a trade agreement that will see both sides reduce tariffs on imports.There have been several other recent U.S.-China espionage incidents, including the sentencing of a former CIA officer who was convicted of spying for China.

New Zealand volcano eruption: elite military team recovers six bodies from White Island as divers continue huntA team of expert divers will continue looking for the last two missing victims of the White Island eruption on Saturday, after the New Zealand Defence Force and police recovered six bodies from the island on Friday in a high-risk operation.  Deputy Commissioner of Police Mike Clement had warned that “a lot will have to go right” for the mission to succeed, and scientists had alerted police to a 50-60 per cent chance of another eruption, but the operation went to plan.  On Friday morning Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a statement that “at least one body is in the water” and divers on the police vessel Deodar were attempting to recover that body.  “We're making every effort to locate and recover the two remaining deceased,” Commissioner Bush said.“This has been a harrowing event for the Whakatane community and those family and friends directly impacted by the eruption of White Island [also known as Whakaari] on Monday,” he said.

GNS Science volcanologist Graham Leonard had warned that in addition to the risk of eruption, the mission would face an environment in which it would, at times, be difficult to breathe and see. Pictures of the recovery operation showed pairs of military personnel wearing breathing apparatus scouring the lunar-like landscape as inflatable dinghies and a police launch waited offshore. Six bodies have been successfully recovered from White Island and are now on board HMNZS Wellington Credit: Getty Commissioner Bush said the recovery team “showed absolute courage and commitment to ensure we can offer some closure to the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones”. “Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased and we thank Iwi [the Maori people] and the local community for their support of the victims of this tragedy,” he said. Speaking to reporters after the six bodies were retrieved, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said questions over why people were allowed to visit the active volcano “must be answered, and will be answered”.  New Zealand volcano An investigation is being conducted on behalf of the coroner, and an occupational health and safety investigation is also being conducted by WorkSafe, New Zealand’s peak workplace safety organisation.  The Prime Minister said the time would come for accountability, but added “we also need to respect the phase we're in now, with families only just getting their loved ones back”. There are now 14 confirmed dead from the tragedy. Twenty-six people remain in hospital receiving intensive medical treatment for severe burns, the majority of whom are in critical condition. The volcano, a popular tourist destination for day-trippers, erupted on Monday, spewing ash, steam and gases over the island.
