Japan Releases Chinese Fishing Boat Captain

Friday, September 24, 2010

One of the worst diplomatic disputes in years between the two most influential Asian nations is coming to an end. Japan is releasing the captain of a Chinese fishing boat captain who was detained after his ship collided with Japanese coastguards earlier this month. The Japanese said the collision was "deliberate, but not pre-meditated." Roland Burke, of our partner, the BBC, reports from Tokyo.
