Japanese Whale Boat Sinks Ship

from slatest.slate.com :

Conservationists say a Japenese whaling boat intentionally sunk one of their ships during a "skirmish" in the Southern Ocean Wednesday. The Ady Gil, a boat that bears an uncanny resemblance to a stealth bomber, sank after a collision with a boat that provides security to Japanese whalers. The Japanese Fisheries Agency says the Ady Gil caused the crash; the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which operated the Ady Gil, says the Japanese rammed their boat, which has a history of harassing whalers with lasers, radar, and other space-age annoyances. The six crew members aboard the Ady Gil were rescued by a nearby Sea Shepherd vessel, and they vowed not to be intimidated by the incident. "If they think that our remaining two ships will retreat from the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in the face of their extremism, they will be mistaken," a Sea Shepherd captain said. "We now have a real whale war on our hands."
