Hong Kong makes $1.4M ivory bust

Hong Kong authorities have made their third big seizure of illegal ivory in three months after confiscating more than a ton of the elephant tusks worth $1.4 million.


The city's customs department said it seized 779 pieces of ivory weighing about 1,300 kilograms (2,866 pounds). The department said Friday that the ivory was found in a shipping container sent to the Hong Kong port. (AP)
