Taiwan holds military drills amid Philippine row – BBC News

Taiwan has conducted military exercises near the Philippines amid a row over the death of a Taiwanese fisherman.

Two frigates, one destroyer and other coast guard vessels have taken part in the drill in the Bashi channel between the two sides.

The fisherman, Hung Shih-cheng, was shot by the Philippine coast guard last week in waters both sides claim.

The Philippine president issued an apology on Wednesday, but Taiwan said the apology was “unacceptable”.
