Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirm that shots fired from a Philippine ship killed one fisherman and caused serious damage.

There have been incidents in the past with Taiwanese fishermen operating in the area being arrested and detained by the Philippine authorities but there have been few reports of shooting, much less injuries and death, reports 'Focus Taiwan News Channel'.

Hung Shih-cheng, 65, was shot dead by the personnel on the Philippine vessel on Thursday morning, when the Taiwanese boat – the Kuang Ta Hsing No. 28 – was operating some 170 nautical miles off the southern coast of Taiwan, Focus Taiwan adds, citing the ministry.

The Philippines later found that one of its ships shot the Taiwanese fishing boat, but the type of vessel deployed by the Philippines and the weapons used were not immediately known.
