3 Chinese ships enter Japanese waters around Senkaku Islands

NAHA, Japan, Jan. 27, Kyodo

Three Chinese coast guard ships entered Japanese territorial waters around the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea on Monday and left the area after staying there for about two hours, the Japan Coast Guard said.

The intrusion around 9 a.m. was the second this year following one on Jan. 12, and the 76th since the Japanese government purchased three of the five main islands in the group from a Japanese private owner in September 2012, according to the 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters in Naha, Okinawa Prefecture.

The Senkaku group is administered by Japan but claimed by China and Taiwan, which call the islands Diaoyu and Tiaoyutai, respectively.
