A North Korean fishing vessel collided with a Fisheries Agency patrol boat Monday morning inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone off the coast of the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture. About 60 fishers were thrown into the sea, according to media reports.

All members were rescued unhurt, the reports said. The surviving members were expected to be handed over to North Korea according to an international treaty.
