Two of the Philippine Navy warships deployed to Benham Rise have docked at the Poro Point seaport here to get logistical support. The BRP Ramon Alcaraz and BRP Sultan Kudarat arrived early Thursday and are expected to go back to Benham Rise on Monday, officials said. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana had ordered the Navy to send ships to patrol Benham Rise after a Chinese survey ship was spotted in the area for three months last year.
