-

Japan detected a submarine suspected to be Chinese off a southern Japanese island, the Defense Ministry said, heightenin­g Japan’s caution levels in the East China Sea as China increases its military activities. The submarine remained submerged, but the ministry said it believes the submarine was Chinese because a Chinese Luyang Iii-class guided missile destroyer was near it. Neither the submarine nor the ship entered Japanese territoria­l waters.
