Chinese fisherman dies resisting arrest by SKorea

The South Korean coast guard fatally shot a Chinese fisherman with a rubber bullet while trying to arrest him for alleged illegal fishing.


The fisherman used a knife to stave off officers before being shot by an officer Tuesday, South Korea's coast guard said. It says he died later in a hospital in the coastal city of Mokpo. China's Xinhua News Agency said the Chinese Embassy in Seoul lodged a protest and expressed "strong dissatisfaction" to South Korea over the death. (AP)
