Chinese boat attempts escape with Taiwanese coast guardsmen aboard

Taipei, March 15 (CNA) Five Taiwanese coast guardsmen are reportedly on their way back home after a Chinese fishing boat that crossed into Taiwanese waters tried to escape with them aboard Saturday afternoon. The Coast Guard Administration said the coast guard personnel boarded the vessel before it attempted to head for China's coastal Fujian Province. Support vessels pursued and captured the Chinese boat before it could escape, the administration said. (By Sunrise Huang and James Lee)
