A Japanese whaling ship and an anti-whaling protest boat collided in the remote, icy seas off Antarctica, with both sides on Monday blaming each other for the crash.

No one was injured, though both ships received minor damage in Sunday's collision — the latest drama in an annual battle between the conservationists and the whalers. (AP)
