China’s Sinopec constructing filling station in disputed South China Sea

BEIJING Chinese oil main Sinopec is building a filling station on an island in the South China Sea, as China continues to expand its civilian infrastructure in the disputed waterway, entrenching its reach in the maritime heart of Southeast Asia.

The filling station and accompanying storage tank on Woody Island in the Paracels will take a year to total, the company, whose listed flagship is Sinopec Corp, said on its microblog on Monday.

Woody Island has a population of roughly 1,000 and Chinese travel agents started supplying five-day cruises to the Paracels, a cluster of close to 40 islets, outcrops and reefs in 2013.

The filling station and storage tank will satisfy fuel demands in Chinese-controlled islands and reefs in the South China Sea over the next handful of years, the post said.

“Nouveaux riches, go fishing in Sansha city, and bear in mind to bring your filling card,” it quipped, referring to an outpost in the South China Sea centered about Woody Island.

China took full handle of the Paracels in 1974 following a naval showdown with the South Vietnamese, and there have been incidents ever because. Taiwan also claims the Paracels.

China claims practically all of the energy-rich waters of the South China Sea, via which much more than $ 5 trillion of maritime trade passes every single year. The Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan have overlapping claims.

The United States has criticized Beijing’s building of artificial islands in the disputed Spratly archipelago, south of the Paracels, and has conducted sea and air patrols close to them.

China’s navy has in recent days carried out a lot more workout routines in the disputed waterway, the country’s defense ministry mentioned on Sunday, calling them routine drills.

London train station stabbing leaves 1 injured: police

LONDON A man has been seriously injured in a stabbing at a London train station, with his alleged assailant reportedly shouting “This is for Syria” during the attack.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police mentioned officers had been called to an incident at Leytonstone underground station, east London, at 1905 GMT on Saturday exactly where a suspect was reportedly threatening members of the public with a knife.

He mentioned a taser was discharged by a single of the officers at the suspect who was then arrested and taken to an east London hospital, exactly where he remains in custody.

The spokesman mentioned a single man had sustained severe stab injuries.

He did not confirm a Sky News report that the suspect shouted the words: “This is for Syria” for the duration of the attack.

Britain is on its second-highest alert level of “severe,” meaning a militant attack is considered extremely probably. This is mostly due to the threat the authorities say is posed by Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq and their encouragement of supporters to carry out attacks in their homelands.

British lawmakers authorized the bombing of Islamic State targets in Syria on Wednesday. Britain’s air force has since carried out two bombing raids.
