Disputed islands of the South China Sea

An aerial view of China-occupied Subi Reef at Spratly Islands in the disputed South China Sea. In the last two years, Subi Reef has transformed from a single building and cranes on an artificial sand bank to what looks look a forward operating base with its own town. China insists these islands are for defensive purposes and objects strongly to planes or boats that come near them.

Subi symbolizes China's increasingly assertive claim to most of the South China Sea, a claim it reinforces in building manmade islands in the Spratly archipelago from dredged sand and equipping them with runways, hangars and surface-to-air-missiles.

A Filipino soldier looks out from a boat in Philippine occupied Thitu island, April 21, 2017. For the 37 Filipino families who call Thitu their home, however, life is basic with just a few buildings, no television or internet, and no shops or street-side eateries. There isn't even a street, just a dirt track used by the island's one vehicle - a small truck.
