MetadataShow full item record
China's reclamation of land on Mabini Reef (Johnson South Reef) in the West Philippine Sea is a progressive undertaking and is likely for military use, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said yesterday. Military surveillance pictures the DFA releases showed the "dramatic transformation " of the reef 333 kilometers off Palawan province: From an out larger concrete structure by March 2013 to an island "hectares" in size today. The photographs appeared to show large-scale reclamation in stages. The latest photograph, dated March 11 appears to show a large light-colored landfill, surrounded by shallow turquoise water.
