South Africa: 
Navigation Warning After Iceberg Sighting
.
9 Oct 07 - The National Sea and Rescue Institute (NSRI) has issued a navigational warning to all ships passing near St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape, following a report of an iceberg on Monday.

Craig Lambinon, spokesperson for the NSRI told BuaNews Tuesday, that the maritime warning alerted all ships and vessels to be on the lookout for the iceberg to avoid accidents. "We received a report from a fishing vessel, called the Ntini, late on Monday which spotted an iceberg 35 Nautical Miles from the Eastern Cape coast. According to the report the iceberg is 25 meters in length and 20 meters in height," said Mr Lambinon.

Media reports suggested that the iceberg was "a symptom of global warming."

The article then goes on to discuss the woes of climate change, "be it in the form of droughts, floods or unpredictable and extreme weather patterns, undermined the world's common efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals."
