China sanctions hit South Korea's tourism sector

China has imposed sanctions on South Korea over its decision to counter threats from North Korea by building an American anti-missile defence system, known as THAAD.

China believes the system is a direct threat to its security and will be used by the US to spy on its military.

In retaliation, China has banned travel companies from sending tourists to South Korea - a move that has drawn sharp criticism and affected business.

Al Jazeera's Craig Leeson reports from the island of Jeju.
