The incident came even as the Duterte administration sought to downplay Manila's maritime dispute with China.

Beijing claims nearly all of the South China Sea.

The Filipino leader, however, said he would raise the verdict of the Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) before his six-year term ends in 2022 despite China's rejection of the ruling.
