Amid increasing tensions with China over some disputed islands, Japan unveils a warship that could double as an aircraft carrier.

Japan has unveiled its biggest warship since World War II, a huge flat-top helicopter carrier.

The ship has raised eyebrows in China and elsewhere because it bears a strong resemblance to a conventional aircraft carrier.

The Izumo, which has a flight deck that is nearly 250 metres (820ft feet) long, is designed to carry up to 14 helicopters.

Japanese officials say it will be used in national defence - particularly in anti-submarine warfare and border-area surveillance missions.
