The intercepts came in the area of disputed islands that China has commandeered and built up with military bases.  The US does not consider the islands legitimate Chinese territory.

This is the first time that the Chinese has flown this close to an american aircraft.  In the past they have issued radio warnings.  The US is protesting the action via diplomatic channels.
