Chinese patrol vessels have driven away the boats of Filipino fishermen who were heading to the Scarborough Shoal.
This comes two days after the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled that China has no historic claim over the South China Sea.
As a group of Filipino fishermen were sailing toward the Scarborough Shoal, Chinese vessels began to surround the boats.
Those on board the Chinese vessels ordered the Filipino fishermen to leave the area at once.
The patrol ships tailed the fishermen’s boats as they turned around to go back to the bay.
