Three Russian coast guards were injured Tuesday in a clash with North Korean fishing boats in the Sea of Japan, Russia's FSB security service said
The vessel involved had more than 45 people on board and led to three coastal guards being injured with "varying degrees of severity." The guards detained the boat, as well as another North Korean fishing boat with 21 people on board.
Russian coast guards frequently detain North Korean fishermen in the Far East, many of whom use rudimentary, illegal wooden boats. Some of them are sentenced to prison.
