TAIPEI---The shooting death of a Taiwanese fish-
erman by the Philippine coast guard has become
the latest incident to roil tensions over territorial
disputes in and around the South China Sea, with
Taipei calling Friday for Manila to apologise for the
Taiwan said the Philippine Coast Guard opened
fire Thursday on a 65-year-old fisherman in waters
claimed by both governments. The Philippines
acknowledged the Taiwanese claim, but said its per-
sonnel were acting in self-defence.
Meanwhile, China sought to make common cause
with Taiwan against Manila, deploring the shooting
in harsh rhetoric that threatened to spark another
diplomatic tussle between Beijing and the Philippines,
a key US ally in one of Asia s most contentious areas.
The US declined to criticise the Philippines, saying
it would await the "full and transparent" investigation
promised by Manila before it makes further judgment.
State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell urged
all parties to ensure maritime safety and refrain from
actions that could escalate tensions.
Speaking to reporters in Taipei, Foreign Minister
David Lin blamed the Philippine coast guard for
opening fire on the fisherman s boat, the Kuang Ta
Hsing No 28, on Thursday, from a vessel belonging
to the fisheries department of the Philippines Depart-
ment of Agriculture in the Bashi Strait, about midway
between southern Taiwan and the northern Philip-
"We strongly condemn the fatal shooting of a Tai-
wanese fisherman by the Philippine fishery depart-
ment," Lin said. "We urge the Philippine government
to open a full investigation on this case and send
their apology to Taiwan s government."
Also on Friday, China expressed its condemnation
of the incident, insisting it was holding the Philippines
accountable for what happened.
"We strongly condemn the barbaric shooting and
killing of the Taiwanese fisherman, demanding the
Philippines should investigate the case and furnish
the details as soon as possible," said Foreign Ministry
spokeswoman Hua Chunying.
Taiwan and China split amid civil war in 1949 and
Beijing continues to claim the democratic island as
part of its territory. In recent months it has made
repeated attempts to bring Taiwan onto its side in
its maritime disputes with Japan and other countries
in the region. Taiwan has so far resisted, reflecting
its own claims of national sovereignty.
Underscoring China s interest in playing the incident
up, government channel CCTV led its noontime news
on Friday with an emotional report on the death of
the Taiwanese fisherman, and the Communist Party-
controlled Global Times newspaper called on the
Chinese navy to increase its presence in the South
China Sea, amid angry condemnations of the Philip-
pines as a "savage" country.
Taiwan s freewheeling media also gave prominent
attention to the incident, with newspapers reporting
it in banner headlines and cable TV news stations
giving it round-the-clock coverage.
In Manila, the Philippine coast guard acknowledged
that its personnel had opened fire on the Taiwanese
boat, but said they acted in self-defence.
"They were forced to fire the shots because the
fishing vessel attempted to ram them," said coast
guard chief Rear Adm Rodolfo Isorena.
Isorena said an investigation into the incident was
being launched. (AP)
