MAPUTO:  Poachers slaughtered 22 elephants in Mozambique in the first two weeks of September, environmentalists said on Monday, warning that killing for ivory by organized syndicates was being carried out on an “industrialized” scale. Citing data from the southeast African nation’s largest game reserve, Niassa, an advisor to the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Carlos Pareira, said “in the first two weeks of September alone we counted 22 elephants that had been killed.”
