The Philippine Coast Guard accused Chinese vessels of engaging in "dangerous" manoeuvres on Feb 11 while on a nine-day patrol close to a reef off the coast of Southeast Asia. The Philippine vessel BRP Teresa Magbanua was sent out early in the month of February to patrol waters surrounding Scarborough Shoal, which is a productive fishing area in the South China Sea, and also ensure the safety of Filipino fishermen. China took the reef from the Philippines in the year 2012, and since then, it has been a flashpoint between both countries.
