Kenya police find record haul of smuggled ivory

MOMBASA - Police in Kenya have seized two tonnes of ivory worth 100 million shillings ($1.15 million), the biggest haul on record in the east African country, officials said on Tuesday.
"This is a big catch, the biggest ever single seizure of ivory at the port of Mombasa," said Kiberenge Seroney, the port's police officer in charge of criminal investigations.
"We fail to understand where one gathers the courage to park such enormous quantities of ivory, hoping that they can slip through our security systems."
