Fishermen disappear, foul play suspected

By Shih Hsiu-chuan  /  Staff reporter, with CNA

Last month the CGA vessel, the Hsun Hu No. 7, left on a three-month mission to protect Taiwanese fishing ships in the Western Pacific Ocean, and was ordered to look for the Te Hung Hsing No. 368 on Tuesday, when it was anchored in the Fijian capital Suva, for refueling, the CGA said.

According to the CGA, although the Hsun Hu No. 7 was then 2,000 nautical miles away from the Te Hung Hsing No. 368, it was the closet Taiwanese patrol vessel to the fishing boat.
