Two US B-52 bombers flew over a disputed area of the East China Sea without informing Beijing, US officials said yesterday, challenging China's bid to create an expanded air defense zone.

The flight of the giant Strato-fortress planes sent a clear signal that Washington would push back against what it considers an aggressive stance by Beijing in the region.

The move also represented a robust show of US support for Japan, which is locked in a mounting dispute with Beijing over disputed islands in the East China Sea.
