INQToday: Fishing boat hit by Chinese cargo ship in WPS ignored by crew, says owner
Here’s a quick roundup of today’s top stories:
The cargo ship which hit a stationary Filipino boat in the West Philippine Sea was identified to be from China, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said on Thursday.
“Under the flag of China,” the PCG told reporters in a Viber message when asked about MV Tai Hang 8’s flag of origin.
The crew of a Chinese cargo ship was just allegedly looking at Filipino fishermen as the vessel ran over the latter’s boat that capsized in the West Philippine Sea.
This was according to Jaziel Juano, owner of the Filipino fishing boat, citing the testimonies of her boat’s crew.
