Philippines has threatened to expel a Chinese diplomatic spokesman in Mla in the latest twist of an intensifying row with the superpower over territory in the South China Sea.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the ongoing row with the Philippines and China regarding the 220 fishing boats found at the Whitsun Reef is reported to be manned by the Chinese maritime militia.
