BEIJING, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday said it rejected Japan's handling of Chinese fishing boat incident.

"China will never accept the Japanese side's applying domestic law to the Chinese fishing boat operating in that area," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told the regular briefing.

Jiang'comments came after Japanese coast patrol handed the captain of the Chinese fishing boat it detained to local prosecutors earlier Thursday. P Two Japanese patrol boats collided with a Chinese fishing boat in waters off the Diaoyu islands Tuesday. No injuries were reported from the collision, but then the fishing boat was intercepted by Japanese patrol boats.
