Turkish Boats Held

NOVOROSSIISK, Southern Russia () -- Russian border guards have detained two Turkish boats they say were fishing illegally in Russia's 40-kilometer coastal zone in the Black Sea.


The two boats detained Friday were taken along with their crews to Novorossiisk, Interfax said Saturday, citing authorities of the guards' Caucasus Special Border District.


Authorities found some 200 rare flatfish on the boats, which were registered in Istanbul, the report said.
