The Philippine navy has arrested 20 Chinese fishermen who were found near a reef claimed by Manila in the disputed Spratly Islands, a military spokesman said. The Chinese were aboard six fishing boats loaded with fish when they were found by patrol ships about five nautical miles from Mischief Reef, Maj. Romulo Gualdrapa said. He was speaking at a military base at Puerto Princesa, about 360 miles southwest of Manila.
