China claims large cyber attacks by U.S.

Beijing has upped the ante on the US over accusations of cyber attacks by China, warning that it also has evidence against the US before a meeting between Barack Obama and Xi Jinping this week.

China Daily said cyber attacks from the US had been "as grave as the ones the US claims China has conducted", and quoted a senior cyber security official as calling on Washington not to openly press Beijing over cyber attacks.

The warning comes as Mr Obama is under pressure to do just that at his first presidential summit with Mr Xi at the Annenberg Estate in California on Friday.
