South Korean maritime police said Sunday they have arrested 24 Chinese sailors who “violently resisted the authority's crackdown on their illegal fishing” in the Yellow Sea.

The latest clash took place in waters near the western port city of Incheon on Nov. 27, when Chinese sailors aboard three vessels fought against Korean maritime police officers, hurling fishing gears and wielding steel pipes at them, Incheon Coast Guard officials said.
