A Chinese fishing boat has been detained by Japan’s coast guard for allegedly fishing inside Japanese waters, Chinese officials say.

The boat was seized on Saturday near Japan’s Kagoshima Prefecture, China’s Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Chinese consulate in Fukuoka, Japan.

The captain had admitted entering Japanese waters, Xinhua said.

The incident comes months after anti-Japanese protests in Chinese cities over disputed islands near Taiwan.
