Japan-China boat clash

world Updated: Nov 08, 2011 01:10 IST

The Chinese skipper of a fishing boat has been arrested in waters off southwestern Japan after fleeing the coast guard and being chased down, Japanese authorities said.

Zhang Tianxiong was arrested on Sunday off Japan’s Goto islands in the East China Sea on charges of refusing inspection and fleeing authorities. China’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment over the incident.
