    Iceland's government is divided over a plan to sell a large area of the island to a Chinese tycoon. 

    Huang Nubo has a preliminary agreement to buy a remote area of land for almost $9m to build a resort.

    But there are concerns the deal is a cover for China to gain a strategic foothold in the area.
