MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippines has protested to China over a Chinese navy ship and two other vessels that allegedly intruded into its waters last month.

Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said Sunday that the Philippine government expressed its "serious concerns" to the Chinese Embassy after the three vessels were sighted near Sabina Shoal in the South China Sea on Dec. 11 and 12.
