It was built to keep Mexicans from crossing illegally into the U.S., but the 1.5 mile fence at the border was mistakenly built on Mexican soil. Border officials say the blunder could cost the taxpayers $3 million.
The fence is a section of a 15-mile barrier constructed in 2000 near the town of Columbus, New Mexico. An aerial survey conducted in March reveals that the fence is no more than six feet from the U.S., but still legally inside Mexico.
In a letter to Washington, D.C., the Mexican Foreign Relations Department said, "Our country will continue insisting for the removal to be done as quickly as possible."
A charter-boat captain from Lake Charles, La., photographed a rare pink dolphin a couple of weeks ago in Calcasieu Lake, an estuary just north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern Louisiana. According to Calcasieu Charter Service's Web site, Capt. Erik Rue was on the lake June 24 with fishing customers when five dolphins came into view — four normal-looking gray ones, and a bright pink one that appeared to be an adolescent. "It appears to be an uncanny freak of nature, an albino dolphin, with reddish eyes and glossy pink skin," the Web site reads. "It is small in comparison to the others it is traveling with and appears to be a youngster traveling with mama. "There is a species of pink dolphin that lives in the Amazon River in South America, but this one appears to be a more common bottlenose dolphin. There are more photos here.
For decades the seven-inch-long shell had been a family memento, polished and given pride of place on the mantelpiece. The First World War relic also served as a toy and finally, for the past 20 years, as a front doorstop at the home of 68-year-old Thelma Bonnett. At any time during all those years, however, it could have exploded. The German squat shell was live, packed with its original payload and with its firing mechanism primed, experts have said. It had been in the family for nearly a century after her grandfather Arthur Croxall brought it home in 1918. "I had no idea it was dangerous," Mrs Bonnett said. A spokesman for the bomb squad said a firing mechanism had been activated during the First World War but the shell failed to go off. The mechanism had since fallen off but the 'live' charge could have exploded at any time.
