China to create city on disputed island

China has said it is going to create a city on a disputed island that is only slightly larger than central park in New York.

The decision to expand Sansha in the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea is likely to stoke tensions with other neighbouring countries.

Many of them are in dispute with Beijing over who owns what in the region.
