Japan sent 10 crested ibises to China on Saturday, officials said, adding that the birds were the offspring of three provided earlier by Beijing.

The Environment Ministry transported the 10 birds, five males and five females born at the Sado Japanese Crested Ibis Conservation Center in Niigata since last year, from Sado Island to Niigata airport, where a handover ceremony was held.
