World court awards Peru swathe of Chile's fish-rich sea

THE HAGUE: Lima cried victory on Monday after the UN's top court handed it a wedge of sea under Chilean sovereignty, but Peruvian fishermen nevertheless said they gained nothing from the historic ruling.
Peru said it drew "satisfaction" from the world court's ruling in which it was handed a part of the fish-rich Pacific Ocean, claimed by Chile since the early 1950s, but its southern neighbour slammed the decision.
The Hague-based International Court of Justice confirmed Chile's sovereignty over waters up to 80 nautical miles (92 land miles, 148 kilometres) from the coast but handed Lima a large swathe of less lucrative ocean beyond that limit.
