Militant groups expressed condemnation over the docking of a US Navy submarine in Subic, Zambales.

Authorities said the USS North Carolina is docked at Subic Freeport for "routine ship replenishment."

The military clarified that the US submarine’s arrival last Sunday has nothing to do with the current standoff between the Philippines and China over the Scarborough Shoal. - Umagang Kay Ganda, May 17 2012
