Damaged KN 951 vessel in the spotlight

Vietnamese fisheries surveillance ship KN-951 was recently violently attacked, rammed and seriously damaged by Chinese ships. 
The ship is one of Vietnam’s law enforcement vessels operating in Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago in defence of China’s illegal placement of its oil rig Haiyang Shiyou- 981 in Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and continental shelf.
For the past two months, fishermen on the KN951 surveillance ship have approached the oilrig area requesting China to withdraw its drilling platform, escort and coast guard vessels from Vietnam’s territorial waters.
Following are some images of the damaged KN 951 ship which are urgently being repaired in Da Nang.
