Filipino and Vietnamese protesters display anti-China placards and Vietnamese national flags during a call on China to respect their rights in the disputed South China Sea, in front of the Chinese consular office in Manila on August 6, 2016. – The Philippines told its fishermen on August 3 to steer clear of a fishing ground in the disputed South China Sea to avoid harassment from Chinese authorities. The warning came despite a recent ruling by a UN-backed tribunal in favour of the Philippines, as it dismissed China’s territorial claims to large swathes of the waters. Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also have claims to the sea, through which over 5 trillion USD in annual trade passes. (Photo by TED ALJIBE / AFP)
