Australian anti-whaling activists detained on Japanese ship

Australia has urged Japanese authorities to hand over three Australian anti-whaling activists detained on a Japanese ship.

The men illegally boarded the whaling vessel off the coast of Western Australia on Sunday.

They are subject to Japanese laws because they were been detained on the high seas.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Sydney.
