Philippine National Police chief Allan Purisima addresses the media during a news conference on the police' arrest of Chinese fishermen at one of the disputed Shoals, the Half Moon Shoal, off the South China Sea Thursday, May 8, 2014 at the police headquarters at Camp Crame northeast of Manila, Philippines. Purisima said the government will investigate 11 arrested Chinese fishermen if they illegally entered the country or committed other crimes, ignoring China's demand for them to be immediately freed. China pressed the Philippine government Thursday to immediately release the fishermen and their boat, warning Manila not to take any more "provocative actions so as to avoid further damage to the bilateral relations."
