Doomed US Navy ship removed from Philippine reef
FILE - In this March 29, 2013 photo released by the Philippine Coast Guard, workers prepare for lifting of a part of the dismantled hull of the USS Guardian on the Tubbataha Reef, a World Heritage Site in southwest of the Philippines. Workers in the southwestern Philippines have removed the last major part of a U.S. Navy minesweeper from a protected coral reef where it ran aground in January, and the damage will be assessed to determine the fine Washington will pay, officials said Sunday, March 31, 2013.
