Vietnam | Officials confiscate 13 rhino horns, other illegal items from shipment out of South Africa

HANOI (Reuters) - Authorities in Vietnam seized 13 rhinoceros horns and related items from South Africa on Friday, just two weeks after the seizure of a ton of illegal wild life products, state media said.

Vietnam is a major consumer of rhino horn, which is believed to have medical powers, and a transit point for elephant ivory to consumers mostly in China and the United States, destined to be made into jewelry and home decorations.
