WASHINGTON Commercial satellite imagery appears to show that China has deployed a surface-to-air missile system in the South China Sea, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Wednesday.

"Commercial imagery appears to indicate that China has deployed a surface to air missile system on a disputed outpost in the South China Sea. If this is true, we believe this will raise tensions further in the region," Toner told reporters.
