Thai officials seize shipment of illegal ivory

Thai customs officials display more than 80 pieces of African elephant ivory seized from a cargo shipment at the international airport last month.

The 315 kilogram shipment was seized from a Kenyan airlines flight from Mozambique.

Thailand has been a wildlife smuggling destination for several years, especially for African elephant tusks.

But authorities said coordination between Thai and foreign officials is helping slow illegal smuggling.
