Dolphins stranded in Philippines


Fishermen are attempting to move a pod of hundreds of dolphins that have gathered off the coast north of Manilla.

Three of the animals, which have been identified as melon-headed whales, were found dead.

Marine biologists say they may have been disorientated by an undersea earthquake or may have been led there by a sick whale.
