China Claims Newly-Formed Island At Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport

It has laid claim on a small island that recently formed at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).  The island emerged as a result of a damaged asphalt runway at NAIA which forced authorities to temporarily shut down the airport for emergency repairs.

China considers the island very strategic because it would give it the right to use the rest of the NAIA runway to guard and protect its new island territory.
