Fresh tension arises in the Aegean as Greek fishermen drop anchor in Kardak islets

Tension between Turkish and Greek coast guard units escalated in the new year over the islets of Kardak, also known as Imia, in the Aegean Sea after 10 Greek fishing boats violated Turkish territorial waters on Monday. Turkish coast guard boats contained Greek fishing boats and prevented them from dropping anchor in the Kardak islets, forcing them to return to their own territorial waters. Source Daily Sabah
