HANOI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Vietnam said on Wednesday a Chinese vessel intentionally rammed two of its ships in a part of the disputed South China Sea where Beijing has deployed a giant oil rig, sending tensions spiraling in the region.

The foreign ministry in Hanoi said the collisions took place on Sunday and caused considerable damage to the Vietnamese ships. Six people sustained minor injuries, it said.

"On May 4, Chinese ships intentionally rammed two Vietnamese Sea Guard vessels," said Tran Duy Hai, a foreign ministry official and deputy head of Vietnam's national border committee.

"Chinese ships, with air support, sought to intimidate Vietnamese vessels. Water cannon was used," he told a news conference in Hanoi. Six other ships were also hit, other officials said, but not as badly.

Dozens of navy and coastguard vessels from both countries are in the area where China has deployed the giant rig, Vietnamese officials have said.

Oh but it's going to get even more interesting:

MOSCOW, May 7 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Pacific Fleet and the Chinese navy will conduct a joint large-scale cooperative training exercise scheduled for mid-May, a military spokesman told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

“In the middle of May, Russian ships will head towards Shanghai, where they are to take part in the large-scale Naval Cooperation-2014 drill with the navy of China’s People’s Liberation Army, to take place in the South China Sea,” said Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov.

And...

NATO and Japan agree to an increase in cooperation

BRUSSELS--The U.S.-led NATO alliance and Japan, facing mounting security challenges in their respective neighborhoods, agreed Tuesday to cooperate more.

The program comes at a time when the alliance is greatly concerned about the intentions of President Vladimir Putin's Russia, which annexed Crimea from Ukraine, and when Japan is beset with security challenges of its own, especially from China.

“In the East China Sea, we have seen persistent intrusions into Japan's territorial waters surrounding the Senkaku Islands,” Abe said in the non-public portion of his speech, according to a transcript provided by Japanese officials. “The number of times that (Japanese) Self-Defense Force aircraft scramble in response to military aircraft approaching our territorial airspace has now reached the same level as during the height of the Cold War.”
