    Dead whale left outside embassy
    A huge beached whale has been dumped outside the Japanese embassy in Berlin. in a Greenpeace anti-whaling protest.
    The
    controversial environmental activists hauled the fin whale to Berlin
    from the Baltic coast after finding it beached on a sandbank.
    The dead whale measured 17 metres (56 ft) long and weighed 20 tons.
    Activists
    are trying to demonstrate that there is no need to kill the mammals for
    research – as Japan does – because cadavers can be found.
    Japan is expected to kill 935 minke whales in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary during the first four months of 2006.
    The
    International Whaling Commission imposed a moratorium on commercial
    whaling in 1986, but Japan resumed whale hunting the following year.
    Critics dispute Japan’s claim to be whaling for scientific purposes, saying whale meat often ends up on restaurant tables.
    A
    Greenpeace banner in Berlin read: “Science doesn’t need harpoons! Stop
    the senseless whaling!”The fin whale in Berlin – between 10 and 20
    years old – is believed to have got lost in the Baltic while looking
    for herring. Its normal habitat is the North Atlantic.
    The whale is due to be taken to Stralsund on the coast for scientific examination after the Greenpeace protest
