China returns underwater drone, U.S. condemns 'unlawful' seizure | Reuters: China has returned a U.S. underwater drone taken by one of its naval vessels in the disputed South China Sea last week after what it said were friendly talks with the United States, which reiterated its criticism of the "unlawful" seizure.
