MetadataShow full item record
Vietnam has started dredging work on a reef in the South China Sea, fresh satellite images appear to show, a move that could provoke Beijing which claims most of the disputed waterway. An image of Ladd Reef in the Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has a lighthouse, shows several vessels in a carved out embankment. Sediment can be seen leaking out into the ocean, according to the Nov. 30 image provided to AFP on Friday by US-based Planet Labs, a satellite imaging company.
