The United States has sent salvage ship Jascon-25 to Tubataha Reef to cut to pieces and remove the USS Guardian, a minesweeper, that ran aground in the protected marine sanctuary, coast guard officials said on Friday. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Rodolfo Isorena said Jascon-25, which was based in Singapore, was expected to arrive at the site today to start salvaging operations. The USS Guardian ran aground on January 17 in the Tubbataha Reef Marine Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, after ignoring warnings from park rangers.
