Japan Reports 3 Chinese Ships in Disputed Waters

Japan's coast guard says three Chinese surveillance ships entered Japanese waters Saturday around the disputed Senkaku islands, which are controlled by Japan and clamed by China.

Maritime officials say the three vessels crossed into Japan's territorial waters in the East China Sea at about 9:30 a.m. .

Ships from the two countries have been involved in a stand-off over the resource-rich islands, called the Diaoyus in China, for decades.
