Authorities find more than 440lbs of cocaine worth £75 million and a decomposing body on a yacht bound for Australia after it ran aground in Tonga.

Following suspicions that a yacht named JeReVe may be transporting drugs, the Australia Federal Police (AFP) joined forces with the Tongan Police, Cook Islands Police and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration to search for the vessel.

They found the yacht after it ran aground on the island of Tonga, where they discovered 440lbs (204kg) of cocaine concealed in the hull and a badly decomposed body.

"As a result of a marine recovery effort in that region a vessel was identified and a badly decomposed body of a male person was located on board that vessel. Also located on board that vessel was 204 one kilo blocks of cocaine destined for the Australian market," said AFP Acting Assistant Commissioner David Sharpe.

"The seizure of the 204 kilogrammes of cocaine has successfully stopped approximately $116 million dollars (£75 million) worth of cocaine reaching Australia's shores," said David Sharpe.

Scientists in Brazil are to clone wild animals, including the jaguar and breeds of monkey, wolf and deer, to try to save them from extinction.


Experts at Brasilia Zoo, who have already successfully cloned cows and horses, are hoping to start creating their first copy of a wild animal next month.
The eight at-risk species chosen are the jaguar, the maned wolf, the black lion tamarin monkey, the bush dog, the collared anteater, the gray brocket deer, the Brazilian aardvark and the bison.

Third boat out of Vendee Globe

French sailor Louis Burton, whose boat Bureau Vallee was hit by a trawler this week, on Friday, Nov.16, 2012 became the third participant to abandon the round-the-world race the Vendee Globe, organisers said.

The 27-year-old pulled out as he tried to head back to the western French port of Les Sable d'Olonne to undergo repairs on a damaged shroud -- rigging that holds up the mast -- following the collision overnight Tuesday-Wednesday.

The collision happened about 400 nautical miles (460 miles, 741 kilometres) off the coast of the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, but wind conditions were such that he instead had to go to Corunna in northwest Spain and abandon, organisers said.

Twenty skippers set off from Les Sables d'Olonne last Saturday but two, including Burton, have pulled out following collisions with trawlers, while one of the favourites, Marc Guillemot, also quit after the keel of his boat was badly damaged.

The only woman in the race, British sailor Samantha Davies, dismasted on Thursday evening but was unhurt. The incident happened in strong winds about 130 nautical miles northeast of Madeira. (AFP)
