Japan identifies four Chinese coast guard ships enter Japanese waters

Four China Coast Guard ships entered Japanese waters around the Senkaku Islands on Sunday, the first such move by Chinese government vessels since October 18, the Japan Coast Guard said.

The ships were spotted entering the territorial waters around the uninhabited islands shortly after 10AM local time. A Japanese coast guard patrol ship communicated warnings to the Chinese ships, saying that they must leave the waters, the coast guard said.

China has laid claims to the Japanese-administered islands, which it calls Diaoyu.
