Chinese ship rattles India

The Chinese research and survey vessel 'Yuan Wang 5' is shown berthed at a dock at the Hambantota International Port on Tuesday in Hambantota, Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan government granted permission for the high-tech Chinese tracking vessel to dock at the port for replenishment purposes, despite neighboring India's concerns that it could spy on New Delhi's military installations. The ship is described as a naval vessel used for tracking and supporting satellites.
