More than 4,000 American troops joined their Filipino counterparts for a series of military exercises in the West Philippine Sea, an area that involves a territorial dispute that centers on a shoal not far from the Philippines' main island of Luzon. The dispute centers on a group of islands known in the Philippines as Scarborough Shoal and recognized as Huangyan island in Chinese. Both Philippines and China have staked a claim on the islands, according to media reports. Reuters Pictures
