Reports state that new photographic evidence has emerged of "significant" Chinese military defences on artificial islands in the South China Sea.

China had previously committed to not militarising its controversial developments in the region.

But satellite images published by a US group appear to show anti-aircraft guns and missile defence systems on the 7 islands.

Several countries claim territorial rights in the South China Sea.
