China evacuates thousands of citizens from Vietnam as China claims Sovereign Vietnam Territory


China evacuates thousands of citizens from Vietnam after deadly attacks:  China has evacuated more than 3,000 of its citizens from Vietnam and is sending ships to retrieve more of them after deadly anti-Chinese violence erupted last week over a territorial dispute between the two countries.

Two Chinese citizens were killed and more than 100 others were injured in the violence that hit parts of Vietnam last week, according to the news agency.Some of the worst violence appeared to have taken place in the central coastal province of Ha Tinh.Foreign factories, particularly those run by companies from China and Taiwan, were burned and looted by rioters outraged over Beijing's decision to send an oil rig into waters of the South China Sea that both countries claim as sovereign territory.

Vietnam, Philippines jointly denounce China's actions!
