Chinese ships around disputed islands, Japan says

Japan said Tuesday that eight Chinese government ships had entered waters around a group of islands in the East China Sea that lie at the heart of a territorial dispute between the two countries.

The Japanese Coast Guard said the number of Chinese ships around the uninhabited islands - known as Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese - was the largest since tensions surrounding the dispute increased last year.
