Vietnam riots

Vietnam is rioting because China has set up an oil rig in disputed waters. Locals have burned down 15 Chinese factories (10 of which were in fact not Chinese but Taiwanese) and killed two Chinese people. Now hundreds of Chinese visitors are holed up in their hotels, in fear of their lives.
It is also worth mentioning that Chinese wages have risen so much that the Taiwanese computer company, Quanta, whose main customer is Apple, is relocating its factories from China to Taiwan and San Francisco.
