0

TAIPEI: Taiwan’s coastguard raided a fishing vessel thousands of miles offshore, arresting nine Indonesian crew suspected of murdering their Taiwanese captain and chief engineer, officials said on Sunday. Armed with rifles and handguns, 10 Taiwanese coastguards conducted the raid early Saturday when the fishing boat was sailing nearly 4,500 nautical miles (8,300 kilometers) from the island’s southernmost tip. The pre-dawn raid came after the vessel’s owner reported to the authorities on July 18 that for three days the Taiwanese skipper had not responded to his satellite call.
