Video Shows Vietnam Fishing Boat Sink After Collision With Chinese Vessel | Reuters

Vietnam said on Thursday the rig had moved position but was still in its 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone and on its continental shelf. China says it is operating within its waters. The rig’s deployment also set off anti-Chinese riots in Vietnam last month. At least four workers were killed. China claims about 90 percent of the South China Sea, displaying its reach on official maps with a so-called nine-dash line that stretches deep into the maritime heart of Southeast Asia. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also have claims to parts of the potentially energy-rich waters.
