Authorities in the Chukchi Autonomous okrug in northeastern Siberia have expelled a group of Greenpeace activists. The environmentalists wanted to investigate the deaths of some 10,000 reindeer in the remote Arctic peninsula this past winter. They have accused the local authorities of failing to take the necessary measures to save the animals. (Ekho Moskvy, April 9)
