China intensifies disinformation, cyberattacks on Taiwan: report

TOKYO/TAIPEI — China’s armed forces are increasingly engaging in nonmilitary warfare on Taiwan that weaponizes disinformation and psychological manipulation, according to a report released Friday by a Japanese Defense Ministry think tank.
