CHILE Chilean Navy discovers more than 600 dead animals in Punta de Choros, a small fishing town north of La Serena.

The crime scene is in close proximity to the Humboldt Penguin Nature Reserve. Two days prior the Movement in Defense of the Environment (MODEMA) reported a band of ten fishing boats off the coastline of Punta de Choros.
