Chinese ship attempts to block Philippine vessel
A Chinese ship has attempted to block a civilian vessel from the Philippines in the disputed South China Sea. But the larger boat was unsuccessful in its efforts as the Philippine sailors made their way to a rusted navy ship in the seas – a symbol of the country’s defiance of China’s claims of ownership.
The Vladivostok warship, a Mistral class LHD amphibious vessel ordered by Russia to the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, western France, leaves for her first trial on March 5, 2014. The Vladivostok warship is one of two navy ships ordered from France by the Russian army and it will take part in a sea trial. (AFP/Getty Images)
