Japan boosts security near isles in China dispute
A China coast guard vessel numbered 2350, left, is followed by a Japan coast guard ship as it intruded into Japan's territorial waters with other vessels near the disputed East China Sea islands called Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 10, 2013. The intrusions appear to be part of recent escalation of China's military and maritime activity ahead of the anniversary of Japan's nationalizing of the islands, about 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles) southwest of Tokyo.
