TAIPEI (Reuters) - About 10 Chinese and Taiwanese navy boats continued to stay close to the median line of the Taiwan Strait on Sunday morning, a source briefed on the matter told Reuters.

Both sides have shown restraint so far, the source fmiliar with the security planning in the region said, since similar navy maneuvering on Monday near the median line separating China and Taiwan.
