Five Philippine fishermen rescued from their sinking boat by a Vietnamese vessel about 300 nautical miles off the waters of Binh Dinh, are en route to the province and will come ashore on Feb. 10 or 11.

They were rescued on Feb. 7 by Pham De, a local fishing boat owner, according to the provincial border guard.
