Investigators have recommended criminal charges against coastguards for the fatal shooting of a Taiwanese fisherman in Philippines.

The illegal fisherman was recently shot and killed in the Batanes group of islands.

Taiwan called the incident “cold-blooded murder” and rejected apologies from the Philippine government.

Local fishermen say poachers from other countries have long been part of their struggles at sea.
