WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The International Whaling Commission on Friday rejected a Norwegian proposal to kill 35 whales in the North Atlantic this year for scientific purposes.

The recommendation was approved by a 14-4 vote at the whaling commission's annual meeting. There were 10 abstentions.

Delegates said Japanese plans for coastal whalers to kill 210 whales will be considered in two months.
