PH fishers narrate Chinese hostility
MetadataShow full item record
A group of fishermen, who returned home to the fishing village of Cato in Infanta town on Monday, told village officials that they were struck with bottles hurled by Chinese coast guards who had chased them away from the Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal. Charlito Maniago, Cato village chief, said the fishermen, who were in two boats, were pelted by the crew of a Chinese Coast Guard vessel, after they were warned to stay away from the disputed shoal. Maniago said he was not informed when the confrontation took place at sea, although it could have been on the same day the fishermen from neighboring Zambales province were shooed away from the shoal on March 5.
