Great news from Greenland: Greenpeace chief Kumi Naidoo arrested

The Danish police are to be congratulated:

Police say the head of Greenpeace has been arrested after climbing an oil rig off Greenland's west coast in an attempt to stop a Scottish oil company from deepwater drilling in Arctic waters.
Police spokesman Morten Nielsen told The Associated Press that Greenpeace's executive director Kumi Naidoo was arrested Friday along with a Norwegian activist on top of the Leiv Eriksson drilling rig, which is operated by Cairn Energy.
Nielsen says the two will be transferred to Greenland's capital Nuuk where they will be charged with trespassing and violating Greenland's "home rule order on safety zones."
