China Expected to Return US Navy Drone 'Soon'

China is expected to return the U.S. Navy underwater research drone seized last week off the Philippines as soon as Tuesday, U.S. officials say. The handover is expected to occur near Scarborough Shoal, one of the flash points in the South China Sea. The underwater “Ocean Glider” drone is expected to be handed over to a U.S. Navy destroyer by the same Chinese Navy ship that seized it last week, according to a U.S. defense official.
