Vietnamese fishermen face increased harassment from Chinese patrols, amid growing tensions between Vietnam and China over contested waters in the South China Sea. In May, China placed an oil rig in disputed waters off Vietnam’s coast. China, who claims almost the entire South China Sea and rejects rival claims from its neighbors, has been aggressively patrolling the contested waters. Vietnamese fishermen are the first to be affected by this conflict, which prevents them from fishing in their usual waters.
