Chinese Spy Ship Spotted in Japanese Waters

YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan -- A Chinese intelligence ship entered Japanese territorial waters Wednesday morning, one day after the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet commander reportedly discussed tensions in the East China Sea with Japanese officials.

The Chinese Dong Diao-class intelligence ship spotted near Kuchinoerabu Island, in southern Japan, is believed to have been monitoring the annual Malabar exercise, a trilateral sea drill including the United States, Japan and India, a Japan Defense Ministry spokesman said Wednesday.
