A Chinese man has been ordered to pay $230,000 or spend seven years behind bars for trying to smuggle ivory out of Kenya.

It is the first case since the government passed a new law to deter illegal trading in ivory. With the country's wildlife being the target of a booming ivory business, Kenya stepped up its penalties to counter poaching.
