AFP won't protect fishermen at West Philippine Sea
MetadataShow full item record
A few days ago, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) reported that a Chinese vessel fired water cannons at a group of fishermen in Scarborough Shoal or Bajo De Masinloc in the West Philippine Sea. Fortunately, the fishermen were unharmed and were able to go back home to their families in Zambales while the ruthless Chinese Coast Guard or the suspects remained in the area to this day. In an interview over Radyo 5 last week, AFP Spokesman Col. Ramon Zagala said the incident should not stop our fishermen from going back to that disputed area as the Philippine military encourages them to continue to ply their trade there.
