China under pressure at Asia summit over sea row

An artificial island at Scarborough Shoal could be a game changer in China's quest to control the South China Sea, according to security analystsBeijing came under pressure at an Asian summit Wednesday over its “illegal” island-building in the South China Sea, after the Philippines produced photos it said showed fresh construction activity at a flashpoint shoal. Any artificial island at Scarborough Shoal could be a game-changer in China’s quest to control the South China Sea and raises the risk of armed confrontation with the United States, security analysts say. Beijing insists it has not started building at the shoal — a move that could lead to a military outpost just 230 kilometres (140 miles) from the main Philippine island, where US forces are stationed.
