Japanese whalers and the radical Sea Shepherd organisation are battling each other in the Southern Ocean today.

Sea Shepherd say the Japanese harpoon boat Yashin Maru No 2 has killed a whale and has made nine attempts so far to transfer it to the factory ship Nisshin Maru.

Sea Shepherd's ship Bob Barker has been blocking access to the factory ship, the organisation says.

Bob Barker is between the two Japanese ships preventing the harpoon boat from transferring its catch onto the stern of the Nisshin Maru.
