Clock ticking for 11 trapped killer whales

Time is running short for a pack of killer whales trapped by ice near a small Canadian village on Hudson Bay, the town's mayor said Wednesday.

The 11 whales are confined in a space of about 30 feet by 30 feet, where they use an opening for a breathing hole, Inukjuak Mayor Petah Inukpuk said.
