HAI PHONG (VNS) — Customs officials and Environmental Police seized around a tonne of ivory in northern Hai Phong City yesterday.
The ivory arrived last Thursday in four containers shipped to Hai Phong Port from Nigeria. Relevant documents said the containers contained peanuts. The provincial customs officials decided to check the containers and found elephant tusks hidden under peanut packages.
Elephant ivory is banned from import or export in Viet Nam. The case is under investigation. — VNS
