A crew of the China Coast Guard vessel watch a Philippine Government vessel as they attempt to block the latter from entering the Second Thomas Disputed Shoals (local name Ayungin Shoal) to resupply and replace Philippine Marines who were deployed for almost five months now Saturday, March 29, 2014. Chinese coast guard ships set up a blockade but a lone Philippine boat maneuvered past them in the high seas Saturday to deliver a fresh batch of Filipino troops and food supplies to a disputed shoal in a tense, cat-and-mouse-like confrontation witnessed for the first time by journalists in the South China Sea.
