    China has begun a
    construction project in the disputed
    Spratly Islands, drawing a formal
    protest from the Philippines, which
    said the move violates a longstanding
    pledge not to build on any of the South
    China Sea's contested islands.
    The project is the latest example of
    Beijing's increasingly assertive
    behavior in the South China Sea
    , a week after it boldly deployed a large
    oil rig, guarded by a flotilla of ships, to
    disputed waters east of Vietnam.
    That action sparked anti-Chinese
    protests and violence against factories
    in Vietnam, and prompted U.S.
    Secretary of State John Kerry to
    criticize Beijing's "aggressive" and
    "provocative" moves.
