Greenpeace activists buzzed ashore Tuesday in motorized rubber boats to plant cardboard tombstones on the beach in protest of the killing of nearly 2,000 whales a year despite a global ban on commercial whaling. St. Kitts police officers, some armed with tear gas and machine guns, quickly arrested the 10 activists, though the protest was peaceful. They were expected to be held overnight and face a magistrate in the morning on charges of obstructing police officers and resisting arrest.
