NAHA, Japan (Kyodo) -- Two Chinese coast guard vessels entered Japan's territorial waters near the Senkaku Islands on Sunday for the second day in a row, the Japan Coast Guard said.

The vessels intruded into the waters near the group of uninhabited islets, which China claims, in the East China Sea at around 4:50 a.m., before leaving the waters around 11:05 a.m.
