Description:

Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano on Tuesday alleged that a Chinese flag was planted on a sand cay seven nautical miles off Kota Island, an indication that China’s incursions on Philippine waters continue amid warmer relations between the two countries. Alejano bared this information from a source he won’t identify to protect said source. He said the presence of the Chinese flag was detected by ship, adding that he has yet to verify if the flag continues to be planted there.
