        Don't think the wing will make it out in 8- 10 hrs. How would they get out, unless another ns vessel shipped them out earlier?

          Well if it was Irish fisheries officers they would be a lot further away from Russia than Norway is.

                  The rest of the story.

                  Elektron


                  Two Norwegian fisheries inspectors who were held against their will on a Russian trawler for five days have been handed over to Norwegian authorities.

                  A Russian rescue ship delivered the two inspectors to a Norwegian vessel anchored in the Barents Sea.

                  The incident started when the trawler, the Elektron, fled while the two men were inspecting it for suspected illegal fishing on Saturday.

                  It was chased by Norwegian coastguards until it reached Russian waters.

                  Norwegian authorities claim the Elektron had been using illegal fishing equipment which violated quota rules on fishing catches.

                  Both Russian and Norwegian authorities say they aim to investigate the captain and crew of the trawler, which was led back to its home port of Murmansk.

                  Lieutenant Colonel John Lien, of the Norwegian military's northern command, said the inspectors were handed over at approximately 0850 GMT on Thursday.

                  "I can imagine that they are very happy to be back on board their own ship with their own colleagues," he said.

                  Old dispute

                  The trawler was stopped on Saturday in the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic, in waters claimed by Norway.

                  The boat was intercepted and told to go to Norway, but it unexpectedly changed its course towards Russia.

                  Although both sides have sought to play down the incident, the BBC's Lars Bevanger, in Oslo, says it has rekindled an ongoing dispute between the two countries over fishing rights in the Barents Sea.

                  Norway claims sovereignty over the waters where the Elektron was apprehended but Russia and other fishing nations disagree. They argue Norway has no right to detain foreign vessels in that area even if they are breaking fishing regulations.

                  Norwegian forces have detained Russian vessels before, but the most dramatic event so far involved an Icelandic trawler in 1994 which was forced to stop when a Norwegian coastguard vessel fired live shots at it.

                            There were a couple of books written some years ago about the History of the NS. They detailed the event pretty well, though if you do a search, I think it was discussed here some time back.
