Fourteen whales, three of which have stopped breathing, were found washed ashore Tuesday morning in Oura, Kagoshima Prefecture.

Police said they were trying to decide whether to resume rescue operations after rough seas and a low tide prevented rescue workers from attempting to tow the surviving whales, which are 8 meters to 10 meters in length, back to sea.
