A dead sperm whale that washed ashore in a national park in Indonesia had
nearly 6kg (13 lbs) of plastic waste in its stomach, park officials say.
Items found included 115 drinking cups, four plastic bottles, 25 plastic bags

The carcass of the 9.5m (31ft) mammal was found in waters near Kapota Island in
the Wakatobi National Park late on Monday.

at WWF Indonesia, was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.
