Scallop war: French and British boats clash in Channel

BBC News 

French fishermen have been accused of throwing insults, rocks and smoke bombs at their British rivals in the English Channel in a vicious scrap over scallops. The clash happened around 12 nautical miles (22km) off the Normandy coast, near the Bay of Seine. British boats are legally entitled to fish in the scallop-rich area. But their presence has infuriated the French, who accuse the British of shamelessly depleting shellfish stocks. Now UK fishermen are demanding government protection, while the French bewail the loss of a "primary resource".
