A member of the South Korean coast guard was killed and another injured Monday after an attack by Chinese fishermen suspected of illegally fishing in the Yellow Sea, the South Korean coast guard said.
The coast guard said two commandos boarded a Chinese ship and were investigating the crew when one person on board stabbed them.
The men were taken into custody, and the ship was taken toward Incheon Port, west of Seoul. The incident is under investigation, the coast guard said.
The South Korean coast guard has stopped hundreds of Chinese boats this year on suspicion of illegal fishing in the Yellow Sea.FULL STORY
