Chinese ships enter disputed waters: Japan

Chinese government ships entered territorial waters off disputed Tokyo-controlled islands for the second straight day on Wednesday, Japanese coastguards said. Three maritime surveillance ships ‘ignored warnings from patrol vessels of our agency... and entered our country’s territorial waters’ shortly after 12.30 pm , the coastguard said in a statement. ‘Our patrol vessels are demanding they leave our country’s territorial waters but they have not replied,’ it said. They were off Kubashima, one of the islands in a chain known as the Senkakus in Japan and the Diaoyus in China.
