The diplomatic tension between China and Japan flared on Aug 15 as Hong Kong activists landed on an island at the center of a territorial row that has plagued the two Asian countries for decades.

The group sailed from Hong Kong on August 12 to the archipelago, known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, with the aim of planting a Chinese flag. Finally, seven people jumped into the water from their boat and reached the rocky shore. They were surrounded by Japanese coastguard vessels and a helicopter that appeared in advance when the Japanese government learned of their intention.

The 2 Japanse coastguard vessels made a pincer movement that describes a neat "V" as in "Victory".

You remember this when IDF 'busted' unarmed Palestinian civilians?
