A Vietnamese couple trying to smuggle in five rhinoceros horns were apprehended by customs officers at Ha Noi’s Noi Bai Airport on Tuesday.
Immediately after confiscation, the horns were sent to the Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology, which determined that they had come from Africa’s white rhino.
Ngo Kim Trong (b. 1948) and Bui Thi Xuan (b. 1965) live in a village in Vinh Phuc province.
The case has been handed over to the police.
