Wildlife goods seized from Chinese citizens in Belgium

Authorities in Belgium have confiscated over 3,000 dried seahorses, 250 ivory items and 25 crocodile bags from 100 Chinese passengers' luggage who were transiting Belgium en route from Guinea to Beijing. INTERPOL, WCO and CITES have informed the Chinese authorities, who have warned travellers not to buy endangered wildlife products and bring them back to China, reports the China Green Times.
