French fishermen fire on Spanish trawler

Paris - French fishermen fired on a Spanish trawler they claimed was trying to destroy their nets, wounding two Spanish crew members. The incident, reminiscent of last year's "fishing wars", took place on Wednesday in the Gulf of Gascogne. The clash between the crews of the Spanish Manuel Herrera and the French Crazy Horse occurred as both vessels were fishing for white tuna. Gabriel Renaud, the French skipper, was being last night while a magistrate investigated whether he should be prosecuted. Agencies
