Philippines-Taiwan row deepens

Investigators recommend criminal charges against coastguards for fatal shooting of Taiwanese fisherman.

    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.

    Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Batanes.
