Fish-bombers destroy century-old coral reefs with homemade bombs in seconds – all for a quick and lucrative fish catch.

The Malaysians and the British are building a bomb blast detection system - codename: Decimus. It is the world’s first attempt at an automated real-time remote system. But teething technical problems, extreme sea conditions, risk of sabotage and theft, kidnappings and murder are all adding to their challenge of making Decimus a success.
