BEIJING — China's  Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday that three Japanese which were detained after allegedly intruding on a Chinese military zone have been released, but one person is still being held.

Xinhua said the three were released after admitting to violating Chinese law, but the fourth, identified as Sada Takahashi, was being investigated for illegally videotaping military targets.

The detention of the four comes amid a bitter territorial dispute between the countries triggered by a Sept. 7 collision between a Chinese fishing trawler and two Japanese patrol boats near disputed islands in the East China Sea.

Tokyo released the fishing boat captain and said China needs to resolve the case of the four as the first step toward repairing ties.
