At least 400 dead dolphins were found on Zanzibar’s northern coastline early Friday, April 28, 2006, alarming villagers, fishermen and tour operators, residents said.

It was not immediately clear what killed the dolphins, whose carcasses were found along a 4-kilometer (2.5-mile) stretch of Nungwi, a popular tourist destination in this semiautonomous Indian Ocean archipelago, said Narriman Jidawi, a marine biologist at the Institute of Marine Science in Zanzibar.
