VIETNAM SEIZES RHINO HORNS SMUGGLED FROM SOUTH AFRICA

HANOI, Vietnam- Vietnam has seized nearly 34 kg of rhino horns, at Noi Bai International Airport, in the capital, Hanoi, on Saturday.

The horns were shipped by a sender in South Africa, on a Qatar Airways flight, to an individual in Hanoi.

Conservationists have warned that, rhinos will become extinct, within the next 10 years, if poaching is not stopped.

The last Java rhino in Vietnam was killed at Cat Tien National Park, in 2010.

There are only 25,000 wild rhinos in the world, at present, with the population dropping by 95 percent, over the last four decades, the agency reported.

South Africa is home to some 20,000 rhinos.
