RÚV English unpacks the last-minute decision to suspend whaling in Iceland this summer.

Darren is joined by his RÚV colleague Valur Grettisson to find out why Iceland's Minister of Food decided to suspend the licence given to hunt whales this summer, just one day before it was due to begin. The move has met with anger from workers, unions, and even politicians in the same coalition government as the Minister.

How much support is there for a complete ban on whaling in Iceland - and does this decision mean it's now effectively ended anyway?
