Taiwan philippines fisherman tensions

Two people hold protest signs at the Philippine de facto embassy in Taipei during a demonstration on May 13, 2013 against the shooting to death of a local fisherman by Philippine coastguards. The incident has led to escalation of tensions between Taipei and Manila as the Taiwanese sent a fleet of four naval and coastguard frigates to the water area near the Philippines where the 65-year-old fisherman was killed on May 9.
