Anti-whaling Sea Shepherd vessels have collided with the
whaling ship Nisshin Marym.
The Institute of Cetacean Research (ICR), which owns the
Japanese ship, said in a statement its vessel was rammed at
least five times by Sea Shepherd vessels Steve Irwin, Bob
Barker and Sam Simon.
The incident occurred yesterday as the Nisshin Marym came
along its supply tanker for refuelling, ICR said.
There were no injuries to the crews of the Nisshin Marym or
its supply tanker.
ICR claimed video of the incident showed Sea Shepherd
deliberately ramming its vessel.
