Topic: New images show China's reclamation on Mischief Reef in South China Sea


(Reuters) - Newly published satellite images show that China is quickly reclaiming land around a submerged reef within the Philippines' exclusive economic zone, with several dredgers in operation and seawalls built. The work on Mischief Reef is China's most recent reclamation in the disputed Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea.
