Elephant tusks seized at Jingjiang port

Divers have located two elephant ivory tusks thrown overboard into the Yangtzee River. Taizhou Customs received a tip-off that sailors from a foreign vessel were planning to sell elephant tusks in Jingjiang port and raided their ship. No tusks were found, but two suspects were arrested and revealed the tusks had been ditched in the river. The suspects claimed they bought the tusks in Port Bata, Equatorial Guinea, from local ivory sellers visiting the ship.
