Greenpeace says Hong Kong’s seafood industry is at risk due to the amount of plastic found in fish.

The group said 60 percent of grey mullet analyzed had large amounts of plastic in their gut.

Grey mullet is one of Hong Kong’s most popular fish. Other species also have problems.

The group said that disposable items such as water bottles are breaking down into tiny fragments.

The so-called "microplastic" then enters into the city’s waters and into seafood.

''These toxins have proven to potentially cause cancer to us and particularly to pregnant women and growing child.”

Hong Kong’s beaches are polluted with nearly 2.5 times more microplastic than those in the U.S.

The group wants the government to crack down on the use of plastic products.

Madonna has lost her bid to stop the auctioning of a letter from Tupac to her.

The letter will now be auctioned in July.

The letter from the rapper, who is deceased, announced he was breaking up with Madonna.

The lawsuit from Madonna was against Darlene Lutz, a former friend of Madonna’s who had obtained the letter.

The judge’s order stated that Lutz received several items from Madonna over the course of their 20-year friendship and that Lutz was entitled to keep those items, reported TMZ.

The judge dismissed the lawsuit, referencing a release that Madonna signed in 2004. The judge said the release meant Madonna couldn’t sue over the sale of the letter.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says extra resources have been added to more rapidly identify victims of Monday’s fatal van attack in Toronto. Shock gave way to grief in Toronto on Tuesday as officials and residents alike struggled to come to terms with a deadly rampage that killed 10 people and injured 15 others. Candles and flowers piled up along the stretch of Yonge Street where a 25-year-old man allegedly drove a rented van down sidewalks Monday afternoon, striking pedestrians in his path. Alek Minassian, 25, of Richmond Hill, Ont., has since been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.

A prankster father in Nevada hijacked his daughter’s boyfriend’s proposal in the most hilarious way.

Allison Barron and her boyfriend Levi Bliss got engaged on March 24, after he wrote the words “marry me” in a field in their hometown of Winnemucca. She said yes, but her dad had other ideas — as he stood in the background with a sign that said “say no.”

Barron reassured everyone that her dad was only joking, and that he and his future son-in-law get on very well.

Images of the proposal were shared to Twitter, where they had racked up over 47,000 retweets.
