LONDON (Reuters) - Protesters from environmental group Greenpeace boarded a drilling rig operated by UK oil explorer Cairn Energy on Monday to try and stall development of what the oil industry hopes will become a major new producing center.

Greenpeace said four campaigners climbed aboard the Stena Don, a semi-submersible rig, which has been drilling the Alpha prospect in the Sigguk block, 175 km offshore Disko Island, West Greenland.
