Japan begins whale hunt
MetadataShow full item record
Japan was facing mounting condemnation Tuesday over its decision to resume killing whales in Antartica, with conservationists saying it was open to another legal challenge. Australia and New Zealand have led criticism of the resumption of "scientific" whaling, with both expressing disappointment. "It's not scientific research, it's straight up commercial whaling, and it's been declared illegal by the International Court of Justice," said Nathaniel Pelle from Greenpeace Austria.
