Starfish infected by unknown deadly disease

Scientists say strange disease of unknown origin killing off the colourful creatures along the California coast.

    Hundreds of colourful starfish clinging onto rocks along California's coastline used to be a common sight, until a few months back. Now they are all nearly gone.

    Marine scientists are puzzled about why the creatures are dying off.
