China has approved the formal establishment of a military garrison on disputed South China Sea islands.

The command will be based in Sansha city on Woody Island in the Paracels; a city formed in June to govern the area.

45 legislators were also named to the new city's congress.

The moves come amid severe tensions between China and its neighbours over ownership of the several groups of islands in the South China Sea.
