Philippines Wary of Chinese Ship

According to the Philippines, a Chinese warship is getting a little too close for comfort. The nation claims that a frigate from the mainland nation is sitting 70 miles off their country’s western coast. According to China, the ship experienced an accident this week and is currently stuck. Six other Chinese ships have surrounded the vessel, presumably to mount a rescue. This isn't the first maritime spat: The two countries locked horns earlier this year after the Philippines accused Chinese fishermen of poaching in its territory.
