MANILA, Philippines – Ex-NBA star Yao Ming and his team, the Shanghai Sharks, met with Vice President Jejomar Binay at the Coconut Palace on Monday.

The Chinese cagers are here in the Philippines to play a couple of exhibition games against Gilas Pilipinas and a select group of PBA stars.

Yao’s visit to Manila comes at a time when the two countries are mired in a territorial dispute over the South China Sea, which the Philippines refers to as the West Philippine Sea. -- Top Story, ANC, May 6, 2013
