The Pentagon says it has "secured an understanding" with China that it will return an underwater drone seized in the South China Sea.

China captured the US vessel in international waters on Thursday. It has not explained why and accused the US of "hyping-up" the incident.

US President-elect Donald Trump accused the Chinese of "stealing".

He tweeted that the US should tell China that they do not want the drone they stole back, and for them to keep it.

The incident is among the most serious military confrontations between the two powers for decades.
