China expanding presence on disputed reef near Philippines: sources

Johnson Reef
Combined supplied photo shows Johnson Reef, a Philippines-claimed reef in the South China Sea. Photo in the top column was taken in February 2013 and the one in the bottom column was taken in February 2014. A Chinese military base is seen at the bottom left of the bottom photo. China has been shipping large quantities of soil to the reef, known in the Philippines as the Mabini Reef, since 2012 apparently in a move to enlarge the land area for security facilities, Philippine and U.S. military sources said May 13, 2014.
