India and Sri Lanka release captive fisherman

Tensions linger between neighbouring nations over fishing rights and territorial waters.

    India and Sri Lanka have released more than 100 fishermen who were imprisoned in each other’s jails for trespassing a maritime boundary.

    Fishing in the Palk Strait, a body of water that separates the two countries has been a long running dispute between the two neighbours.
