• Illegal ivory seized in Vietnam


    HANOI: Police in Vietnam have made two sizeable seizures of illegally imported elephant tusks in the past few days, state media said Wednesday. The VNExpress news site said customs police in central Danang’s Tien Sa port Tuesday discovered “a large amount of elephant tusks and pangolin scales hidden in 19.5 tons of red beans in a container that had arrived from Malaysia.” Late last week, police also seized two tons of elephant tusks from Nigeria, state media reported. Earlier in the month police seized more than 700 kilograms of rhino horns and elephant tusks believed to have originated from Mozambique.
