Singapore in a reported sand grab...

Cambodia is in danger of devastating its coastal areas by dredging vast quantities of sand to export to tiny Singapore for reclamation, a watchdog group reported recently. Cambodia has become a prime source of sand used to enlarge Singapore's territory now that several other nations - including Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam - have banned sand exports.

Singapore has reportedly increased its surface area by 20% in recent decades through reclamation. London-based environmental watchdog Global Witness has also noticed that the wealthy island state claims to be a leader on environmental issues. Yeah right. Some people will believe anything!
