Malaysia’s airport customs seized about $3.1 million worth of rhino horns, which were shipped from Mozambique via Doha on Qatar Airways. The seizure of rhino horns is the first case in Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and comes after local media reported an 846 kilogram haul of ivory tusks at the airport in January 2017. The horns were shipped with false documentation and classified under “Obra De Arte” (object of art). Global trade in rhino horn is banned by the United Nations Convention on Endangered Species and Flora. However, in some Asian countries it is prized as an ingredient in traditional medicine.
