Philippines protests at South China Sea water cannon incident
(Reuters) - The Philippines protested strongly on Tuesday against China's use of a water cannon on Filipino fishermen in the disputed waters of the Scarborough Shoal, a traditional fishing ground for Filipinos, warning the incident would escalate tensions. China's Chargé d'Affaires in Manila, Sun Xiangyang, was summoned on Tuesday to "strongly protest the efforts of China to prohibit Filipino fishermen from undertaking fishing activities in the Philippines' Bajo de Masinloc", said Raul Hernandez, the foreign ministry spokesman. "We call on China to respect our sovereignty and rights of our fishermen in the area," Hernandez told a news conference.
