"China has allowed the first group of tourists to visit its controversial man-made island in the disputed South China Sea. A Hainan Airlines plane carrying civilian visitors touched down on Fiery Cross Reef on Friday, Sina News reported.
The tourists are all families of soldiers who are stationed on the island, the report said."
The Hong Kong Free Press has pictures and story. In our opinion the entire Fiery Cross Island construction process was illegal under international law and the nations protesting this event have a real legal case, just not a big enough navy to oust the Dragon.
