Japan anti-whaling activists bicker

Ex-skipper is accused of lying after he says he was told to scuttle protest boat to win sympathy.


    Japan’s whaling programme is under new scrutiny, this time because of an internal dispute among a group of anti-whaling activists.

    A former captain with the conservation group Sea Shepherd says he was ordered to scuttle his boat following a collision with a Japanese whaling ship. His ex-boss says he is lying.

    Gerald Tan has the story.
