Norwegian whale slaughter biggest for decades

As the four-month Norwegian whaling season comes to a close, the number of whales slaughtered has reached its highest level since 1993.  Despite a global ban on commercial whaling, whalers in Norway have caught 729 whales and the number could rise further even though demand for the meat is falling in Norway.
