VIETNAM: Anti-China protests staged in Vietnam

Anti-China protesters have been rallying in Vietnam in the past week, apparantly angry over China’s claim on the Spratly and Paracel archipelagos in the South China Sea. The islands are considered strategic outposts and have potentially rich oil and gas reserves as well as plentiful fishing grounds. The rallies in support of Vietnam’s official territorial claims, were initially tolerated by police, triggering a diplomatic protest from Beijing.
