New satellite images show China is still developing facilities in contested waters in the South China Sea, according to a report by Reuters TV. 

Recent satellite photos show Beijing is boosting its island bases in areas contested by five countries including the Philippines. An analyst said China might again reassert sovereignty over the disputed South China Sea. 

The report comes days after President Duterte said China has given assurances it will not put up structures in Scarborough Shoal.

The Chief Executive has maintained a friendly stance with Beijing particularly on the issue of the South China Sea. But he also said he will bring up the tribunal decision favoring the Philippines at a later time.
