Taiwan fishing town reels over sea dispute

As competition over fishing grounds intensify, fishermen urge Taiwan and Philippines to resolve spat.

    It has been two weeks since a Taiwanese fisherman was shot dead by Filipino coast guards.

    Since then, governments of the two countries have been locked in a diplomatic spat.

    Some local fishermen are urging Taiwan and the Philippines to agree once and for all just who can fish where.
