The government protested Wednesday the international ramming of three Philippine fishing boats by a Chinese coast guard vessel on Jan. 29 and the destructive and illegal harvesting of giant clams in Panatag Shoal, also called Bajo de Masinloc. The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) handed over two protest notes to representatives of the Chinese embassy in Manila, in connection with the recent incidents at Panatag Shoal. The DFA received a report from the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) that three Philippine fishing vessels -F/B Barbie, F/B Ocean Glory 2 and F/B Ana Marie - were "intentionally rammed" by Chinese vessel 3412 last Jan. 29.
