“Dragons Hole”: China claims to have found the world’s largest hole…

On Wednesday, state broadcaster CCTV announced that the newly found “dragon’s hole,” a 984-foot (300-meter) cavern in the disputed waters of the South China Sea, is now the world’s largest hole.

With territorial claims by Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, the Philippines, Taiwan, and China, the South China Sea — rich in natural resources and crisscrossed by shipping routes — is one of the most militarized areas on the planet.

According to Xinhua, the blue hole is called the “eye” by locals and lies within the disputed Paracel Islands, which is claimed by China and Taiwan and Vietnam. http://www.businessinsider.com/worlds-giant-hole-in-south-china-sea-2016-7?yptr=yahoo?r=UK&IR=T
