Taipei, Sept. 2 (CNA) A Taiwanese fisherman landed an unexpected catch
Wednesday when he hauled in his nets to find four missiles inside.
The fisherman, from eastern Taiwan’s Taitung County, was fishing in waters off Pingtung County’s Jiupeng Base (九鵬基地), a major center for military missile tests, when he made the unexpected catch from his boat.
The unnamed fisherman, who is captain of the vessel, ordered his crew to carefully pull in the net.
After inspecting the four missiles, the captain threw three of them back overboard because they were severely damaged, but kept the fourth, as it seemed to be in better shape. [FULL STORY]
