Greenpeace activists arrested in Bering Sea protestActivists from the environmental group Greenpeace said they were able to disrupt operations at a Statoil rig drilling for oil in the Barents Sea.

A handful of Greenpeace activists left the Arctic Sunrise protest vessel on inflatable boats and kayaks to protest against drilling above the Arctic Circle. The group targeted a Statoil operation at its Korpfjell well, which the environmental group said was the northernmost drilling target to date.

The activists halted the operation of the rig, and after several hours of demanding an end to the drilling in the Arctic, the Norwegian Coast Guard interfered with the peaceful protest, arresting the Arctic Sunrise ship, the activists and crew members," the advocacy group said in a statement.
