MANILA, Philippines —

Chinese vessels scampered away from a shoal within the country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) onWednesday after being warned by Philippine maritime authorities.

In what is seen as a victory for the Philippine claim of ownership over the West Philippine Sea, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) twice scared away the Chinese from  Sabina Shoal west of Palawan.
