Scores of Chinese Fishing Boats Invade Korean Waters

      Over 150 Chinese fishing vessels lay at anchor on Thursday after illegally working overnight in waters only around 300 m off Korea's Yeonpyeong Island.

      They were so close to the Korean shore that their conversations could be heard by anglers there.

      A group of Chinese fishing boats are engaged in illegal fishing near Yeonpyeong Island on Thursday.

      Chinese trawlers crossed the Northern Limit Line for several days, a resident said. "But the Korea Coast Guard seems too busy to come and stop them in the aftermath of the ferry disaster."

      "Yeonpyeong Island has become Chinese territory," he added.
