Boats impounded

Six South Korean boats have been impounded in Sierra Leone:

Six South Korean fishing vessels have been confiscated after crossing into Sierra Leone's territorial waters.

A navy spokesman told the BBC the trawlers were caught poaching fish and shrimps in Sierra Leone's waters. They have been held since the weekend in the capital, Freetown, and if found guilty, each vessel faces a $30,000 fine and the loss of their catch.

Illegal fishing off the coast is a big problem for a country whose economy is fragile after a brutal civil war.
