US expelled two Chinese diplomats on spying claims: report

The United States quietly expelled two Chinese embassy officials in September after they drove onto a sensitive military base in Virginia, The New York Times reported Sunday. The newspaper, which cited multiple people with knowledge of the episode, said it appeared to be the first time in more than 30 years that the US has expelled Chinese diplomats on suspicion of espionage. The incident comes as the United States and China, the world’s two biggest economies, wrangle over trade.
