The US has spoken out over "dangerous conduct and intimidation" in the South China Sea, after ships from Vietnam and China collided in disputed waters.

The collisions came as the Vietnamese ships tried to prevent China setting up an oil rig near the Paracel islands.

The incident is the most serious between the countries at sea in years, with dozens of boats now in the area.

The US state department called Beijing's move to introduce an oil rig in the area "provocative".
