Japan kills 333 whales – including more than 200 pregnant females – in latest Antarctic haul as it continues to reject international orders to stop hunting

  • Japan slaughtered more than 300 whales, including 200 pregnant females
  • Were killed in the country's latest whaling mission in the Southern Ocean
  • Japan's actions come despite a 2014 UN legal decision that said so-called scientific whaling activity was a front for commercial hunts
  • Tokyo claims it is trying to prove the whale population is large enough to sustain a return to commercial hunting.
