HANOI: In­done­sia’s navy shot and wounded four Viet­namese fish­er­men aboard a fish­ing boat in the South China Sea at the weekend, Viet­namese au­thor­i­ties said. The Viet­namese boat was about 245km south-east of Viet­nam’s Con Dao is­land when they were shot on Satur­day night, of­fi­cials said. Two of the men were se­ri­ously wounded. Dis­putes over fish­ing rights and oil drilling have stoked ten­sion in the sea. – Reuters
