Antarctic iceberg

Singapore-sized iceberg breaks off in Antarctica



An iceberg the size of Singapore has broken off from the Pine Island Glacier in west Antarctica.

NASA has been monitoring a crack which developed in October 2011.

Now, just over two years on, the block of ice has broken free and started drifting out to the Southern Ocean.

The iceberg is estimated to be 35 kilometres by 20 kilometres.
