Translated STORY: Three Japanese sailors injured by Dutch ships
Japans Antarctic whale research (JARPA II) vessels were subject from the February 11 evening to the 12 wee hours to yet another wire hawser and butyric acid attack by the Dutch-registered ship Steve Irwin and the Togolese ship Bob Barker. The Steve Irwin and the Bob Barker repeatedly deployed wire ropes and used a launcher to fire butyric-acid projectiles against the Japanese vessels.
Three Shonan Maru No. 2 sailors resulted victims of acid-splash chemical injury from the Dutch ship attack.
The Dutch and Togolese ships have been pursuing the Nisshin Maru since February 6 and 8 respectively. Following a Greenpeace-style antics display on February 9, at about 16:50 February 11 the Steve Irwin approached the Nisshin Maru port side to near-miss distance while firing a water cannon.
