According to the Taiwan fisheries department, the brawl started when the fishing vessel’s chief officer “hacked two of his crew to death in a disciplinary action dispute”, reported ABS-CBN News.

Two crew members, including a Filipino national, have been confirmed dead.

Meanwhile, six crew members who were forced to jump overboard the vessel to escape the brawl are still missing.
