Thai officials seize smuggled rhino horns

Thai authorities have seized more than $500,000 worth of rhino horn from passenger's luggage at a Bangkok airport.

 

Thai Customs officer Khanit Isdul said Sunday that officials acting on a tip-off found four rhino horns in the passenger's luggage at Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Officials arrested Phan Quangloc, a 56-year-old Vietnamese passenger who arrived with the case from Ethiopia on Sunday. He is expected to face a jail term in Thailand if convicted of smuggling. (AP)
