These reports also said that the 1,350-ton destroyer Chang Chih flagship of the nationalist warships blockading the east coast of China south of Shanghai, had been surrendered to the communists by a mutinous crew. At the same time the nationalist central news agency reported full-scale fighting around Amoy, port city and stepping-stone -to the island of Formosa in Fukien province.

Moreover, it was expected to release a large number of communist troops from the area around Suiyuan for fighting elsewhere.
