o2210065 22nd October 2006 – Hvalfjšrour, ICELAND
An endangered Fin Whale, harpooned yesterday is brought to the harbor of Hvalfjšrour, Iceland. The Fin whale is the first kill by Iceland and marks the resumption of commercial whaling for the country. Greenpeace condemns the act of killing an endangered fin whale as "a senseless waste" arguing that there is no economic or scientific justification for the hunt.
