Pelosi-Taiwan live news: China announces military drills


Alaska’s Republican Senator Dan Sullivan says it is important to support Pelosi’s visit toTaiwan, because “you do not want the Chinese Communist Party dictating to senior American leaders where they can and cannot travel.”

“We’re supporting the trip and we’re closing ranks behind her,” Sullivan said during a news conference.
Digital attacks against Taiwanese government websites ahead of Pelosi’s arrival in Taiwan were likely launched by Chinese activist hackers, or “hacktivists,” a cybersecurity research organisation has said.

“These are uncoordinated, random, moral-less attacks against websites that Chinese hacktivists use to get their message across,” said Johannes Ullrich, Dean of Research at the SANS Technology Institute, a cybersecurity education and research organisation.

“Usually it continues for a few days, but they often lose interest within a week. Many of the attacks are motivated by what is written in the Chinese press,” Ullrich added.
