  • Injured surfers and large number of dead sea creatures reported in Kamchatka regionWater pollution in Russia's Kamchatka peninsula that caused sea creatures to wash up dead on beaches has prompted fears that rocket fuel stored in the region's military testing grounds may have leaked.

  • Officials later confirmed the surfers had sustained mild burns to their corneas.
