A vessel operated by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society on Friday attacked a Japanese ship conducting “research whaling” in the Antarctic Ocean by hurling about 15 bottles containing a foul-smelling liquid and powder, the Fisheries Agency said.

None of the 15 crew members on the Japanese ship was injured in the attack, which began at around 6 p.m. Japan time and continued for about three hours, according to the agency.
