Thorough investigations needed following major rhino horn seizures in SE Asia

Update, 31st March 2017: According to Customs News, an official channel for Vietnamese Customs, of the 46 rhino horns seized in Viet Nam on 14th March only five were tested by the Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity Resources (the CITES Scientific Authority in Viet Nam). Four are confirmed to be White Rhino horns and one is from a Black Rhino. TRAFFIC urges Vietnamese officials to take samples from all 46 horns and send them to RhODIS, the Veterinary Genetics Testing Lab in South Africa, so that standardized testing can determine the species and origin of these horns.
