Disputed Island… Gone!

India and Bangladesh have less to argue about today as a disputed island in the Bay of Bengal disappears beneath rising seas.

Named either New Moore Island by India or South Talpatti Island by Bangladesh, both India and Bangladesh claim ownership of the Island.

However, Calcutta scientists say that satellite images show that the island, which was only ever two meters above sea level, can no longer be seen.
