Japan protest over China ship's radar action

BEIJING. February 5. KAZINFORM A Chinese vessel has locked its weapon-targeting radar on a Japanese ship, Tokyo says, amid mounting tensions over a territorial row.

He said this prompted Tokyo to lodge a formal protest with Beijing on Tuesday.

The row, over islands known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, has escalated in recent months.
