Kenya arrests 'rhino poaching gang'
Kenyan authorities have arrested a gang suspected of killing a white rhino and cutting off and selling its horns. Julius Kipng'etich of the Kenya Wildlife Service said the suspects were caught with two rhino horns and 647,000 shillings ($8,500) in cash. It is thought some of the 12 suspects were buyers of the horns and had used the money to pay the poachers. Kenya had many thousands of rhinos in the 1970s but only hundreds remain after decades of poaching. The hunters supply an illegal trade in rhino horns, which are widely used in traditional medicines in Asia.
