BEIJING (AFP) - China has issued a warning to tourists planning trips to Vietnam, as state-media on Thursday blamed Hanoi for encouraging the country's worst anti-Beijing riots in decades, in which one Chinese worker was killed.

Anti-China protesters set more than a dozen factories on fire in Vietnam on Wednesday in response to Beijing's deployment of an oil rig in waters contested between the two nations.

China's tourism administration said in a notice on its website Wednesday that any Chinese planning to visit Vietnam should "carefully consider" their plans, and called for visitors to "raise their consciousness of danger".
