South China Sea dispute: Philippine gov’t steps up sea patrols

Tensions between The Philippines and China have resurfaced in the past few weeks with China announcing it will push for a code of conduct in the disputed waters of the South China Sea.
The Philippine Coast Guard says it is stepping up patrols in the area, where Chinese vessels continue to linger.
Joint patrols with the US and Australia are also in the works.
