Chinese ships still guarding Panatag
MetadataShow full item record
Aerial surveillance shows Chinese Coast Guard ships are still guarding the disputed Scarborough Shoal, but Filipinos are seen fishing there “unmolested” for the first time in years, according to Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana. Lorenzana on Sunday said the return of Filipino fishermen to the shoal was “a most welcome development.” Malacanang last night described as "good development" reports that Filipino fishermen had been allowed to freely enter and fish in the contested Panatag Shoal.
