NAIROBI, Kenya — The Kenya Wildlife Service said its agents have shot dead two suspected poachers who they saw shooting at a herd of elephants in one of the country's famous national parks.

This brings the number of poachers shot dead by agents of the wildlife service to five, the most killed in a month, spokesman Paul Udoto said Friday.

He said rangers gunned down the two suspected poachers and recovered one firearm on Thursday at the Amboseli National Park, a key sanctuary for animals in southwestern Kenya.
