 A team of investigators from Taiwan on Wednesday (May 29) started interviewing the Philippine Coast Guard personnel about the shooting incident earlier this month that left one Taiwanese fisherman dead.

Taiwan chief prosecutor Lin Yen Liang told reporters they started interviewing personnel who were aboard the Philippines surveillance ship during the shooting incident.
The row is the latest flare-up in Asian seas where disputes in various places between various countries have raised fears of conflict in the economically vibrant region where competition for resources is intensifying.
