An island under the sea

At the end of Operation Tortoise, the Grk adventure set in the Seychelles, I wrote that, because of global warming, the islands might suffer the fate of many low-lying islands throughout the world and sink under the waves. That has now happened to a tiny island, the cause of disputes between India and Bangladesh, which has now gone forever. See this BBC report for details: "A tiny island claimed for years by India and Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal has disappeared beneath the rising seas, scientists in India say."
