SYDNEY (Reuters) -A Chinese intelligence ship was tracked off Australia's west coast within 50 nautical miles of a sensitive defence facility, Australia said on Friday, raising concern amid an election campaign about China's behaviour in the region. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the Chinese navy vessel was not in Australian territorial waters but its presence was "concerning". "It is clearly an intelligence ship and they are looking at us and we're keeping a close eye on them," he told reporters.
