Cambodia Arrests 2 Vietnamese Men With 80 Kilograms of Ivory

Cambodian police said they arrested two Vietnamese men on Monday who were trying to smuggle almost 80 kilograms (176 pounds) of illegal ivory from Africa.

Deputy provincial police chief Um Amra said the two men were caught with the elephant tusks after arriving in the northwestern town of Siem Reap on a flight from South Korea. He said the ivory was originally shipped from Angola, and the men said they planned to sell it in Vietnam.

Three pieces of ivory found in clothing container at Ho Chi Minh city

Vietnamese customs examined a clothing container sent from France, destined for Hanoi, but which was mistakenly sent to Ho Chi Minh city. Customs found the container suspicious as it seemed to be heavier than usual. Instead of sending it to its destination in Hanoi, they did a careful check on the container. 

3 pieces of ivory, weighing more than 4 kg, were discovered.
