Japan says China has sailed a fleet of more than 230 vessels - most of them fishing boats - close to Japanese-controlled waters in the East China Sea.

Tokyo says the fleet included six coastguard ships, three of which appeared to be armed.

Japan has summoned Chinese diplomats to protest.

Over recent years, Beijing has become increasingly assertive about its rights in waters it believes are Chinese.
