More news leaks point to China's plans for second aircraft carrier
News that China is building its second aircraft carrier leaked out again on the weekend, once more through official civilian channels before the reports were pulled.
A city government microblog and an official newspaper, separately mentioned on Saturday that a power cable manufacturer in the city had "won a tender for the second aircraft carrier". The sources cited a city government economic and information technology conference held on Friday.
The defence ministry has kept tight-lipped about its plan for building aircraft carriers. scmp
