Hong Kong | Officials seize over 80 kg of rhino horn & cut pieces in biggest interdiction in 5 years

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong authorities said they seized 82.5 kilograms of rhino horn and cut pieces worth HK$16.5 million ($2.10 million), the biggest haul in five years, as the Chinese controlled territory tries to tackle growing trafficking in endangered species.


The move comes after seizures by Hong Kong earlier this year of 40 kilograms of rhino horns, 8.3 tonnes of pangolin scales and more than 1000 ivory tusks.
