Navy Orders Japanese Vessels Away from Disputed Islands

The Chinese State Oceans Administration said that three of their navy ships ordered Japanese vessels to leave the area near the disputed Diaoyu Islands, according to Latin American Herald Tribune.

The Japanese ships entered into the waters of the disputed islands and committed infractions.

Last year in September, three of the tiny islands were bought by the Japanese government.

That move has sparked violent protests in China.
