Japan/China/Taiwan Incident?

NY Times mentioned it:

Lately Mr. Ma’s energies have been focused on smoothing out a diplomatic conflict that caught him by surprise — a surge in tensions with Japan over a June 10 incident in the group of disputed islands that the Taiwanese call the Diaoyutai Islands, where a Japanese coast guard vessel sank a Taiwanese sport-fishing boat. Although Japan administers the islands, which it calls the Senkaku Islands, China and Taiwan argue that they belong to the Chinese people.

Protesters in both mainland China and Taiwan have demanded a formal apology from Japan.

Right after a new President took power in Taiwan who was elected on better relations with China, and this happens with Japan. Who would of thought!
