There’s something fishy going on…

A fish with markings that resembled a Koranic text has disappeared from the Kenyan Fisheries Department in Mombasa.

The tuna fish, which had provoked intense interest from Muslims, was apparently stolen by people posing as National Museum officials.

The theft was discovered when the real official from the museum, based at Fort Jesus in Mombasa, came to get the fish. The fish was being studied to find out if the Arabic inscription "You are the best provider" was natural or a hoax.
