HANOI - About 13,000 people working for foreign companies in a Vietnamese industrial park protested Tuesday against China's deployment of an oil rig in waters claimed by Hanoi.
The protest started in the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park 1 (VSIP1) in the southern province of Binh Duong, and followed demonstrations by thousands of Vietnamese across the country over the weekend.
"It is now spreading to VSIP2," Nguyen Van Leo, head of the labour department in the industrial park said. "At least 3,000 workers are still protesting in VSIP2."
