Taiwan issues ultimatum to Philippines over death

The government of Taiwan has given the Philippines until Wednesday to apologise for the death of a Taiwanese fisherman whose vessel was fired on by the Philippines' coastguard.

Taipei called the incident brutal and outrageous but Manila says the firing was in self-defence.

Cindy Sui reports from Taipei.
