NEPAL attempts record with a Dead Sea of plastic bags.

YOUNG Nepalis Students created a map of the Dead Sea with used plastic bags last Wednesday in a bid to set a new international record and-

And raise awareness about the vast volumes polluting the world's oceans .

Volunteers tied 100,000 colourful  used  plastic bags on a metal grid 20 metres [65 feet] long and five metres [16 feet] tall, shaped like the Dead Sea , on open ground in Kathmandu's city centre.

The record attempt was organised  with a slogan ''One Dead Sea is enough for us.''

''We decided to tie plastic bags and make a sculpture of the Dead Sea to spread awareness over the  world to minimise waste of plastic,'' Surgeon BC of Stem Foundation Nepal, the group that organised the event told AFP. [Agencies]
