Two Vietnam-registered fishing ships were driven out of China's territorial waters by two ships from a China Marine Surveillance fleet on Wednesday.
The Vietnamese vessels were spotted at around 7 am in the South China Sea around the Xisha Islands.
They were suspected of illegal fishing within China's territorial waters, according to a Xinhua reporter on board a CMS ship. The CMS fleet, composed of three ships and a helicopter, is conducting regular patrols of the Xisha Islands.
