“The port of Umm Qasr is being de-mined by dolphins attached to cameras. Apparently they go down and see something suspicious, then come back and tell their handler there’s something suspicious.
He then gives them an explosive charge, they take it down, put it next to the suspicious object, come back, it blows up, and then they go down and look at it again!”
Owen Bennett Jones, reporting from the UK supply ship Sir Galahad before Umm Qasr, 1109GMT. BBC: Iraq-at-a-Glance.
