The United States has said it will deploy a US P-8 Poseidon spy plane to Singapore for the first time.

It is the latest in a series of US military actions seen as a response to China's increasingly assertive claims over territory in the South China Sea.

The Boeing plane will be based in Singapore for a week.

American P-8s already operate from Japan and the Philippines, and surveillance flights have also taken off from nearby Malaysia.
