Philippines Cries Foul Over ‘Chinese Militia Ships’ Near Whitsun Reef

Late last week, the Philippine Coast Guard said that about 200 vessels, believed to be part of the Chinese maritime militia, were seen attached in a line formation in the Whitsun Reef in the South China Sea.

The Philippines has spotted unknown structures installed on a series of reefs in the South China Sea, where “a flotilla” of Chinese fishing vessels, allegedly manned by militias, was earlier tracked by Manila.

The Philippine military said on Thursday that the structures were tracked during maritime patrols conducted earlier this week. The military did not give any details related to the structures, only stressing that their installation runs counter to international law.
