"Vietnam has launched a live-fire naval drill off its central coast amid a nasty spat with China following two maritime incidents over disputed territory in the South China Sea. A naval officer based in central Quang Nam province says the first part of Monday's nine-hour exercise began in the morning on and around the uninhabited island of Hon Ong, some 25 miles (40 kilometers) off Vietnam's coast. He declined to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the press." (06/12/11)
