Peru investigates deaths of more than 500 pelicans

The government of Peru is investigating the deaths of more than 500 pelicans along a 70km stretch of shoreline in northern Peru.

Officials say tests suggest the birds died on shore over the past few days.

Scientists also found the carcasses of dozens of other sea birds.

The animals were found in the same region of Peru where more than 700 dolphins were washed ashore earlier this year. The cause of their death is still unknown.
