MANILA - The Philippines will not yet send ships to Ayungin shoal off Palawan where Chinese fishing vessels have been spotted.

Malacañang says the Chinese intrusion is already the subject of a diplomatic protest.

Ayungin shoal is part of the Philippines' exclusive economic zone, but China is also claiming the area as its own.
