Several factories have been set on fire amid anti-China protests at an industrial park in southern Vietnam, amid tensions over the South China Sea. The park's management said three factories were set on fire on Tuesday, but other reports put the figure as high as 15. No casualties have been reported but officials said many arrests were made.
