Excerpt - TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan's coastguard said Tuesday that a Chinese spy ship intruded into waters around the island before being shepherded away by Taiwanese navy vessels.

The incident came amid growing tensions between Taiwan and China after the Chinese parliament this month passed an anti-secession law aimed at the island off the southeastern Chinese coast.

"The ship sailed away after it was approached by naval and coastguard ships," a coastguard official told Agence France-Presse.

The United Daily News said the Chinese vessel, the Xue Long, was first spotted off the island on Sunday, prompting the navy to send frigates to follow it closely.
