Hong Kong customs have seized a shipment of elephant tusks, rhino horns and leopard skins from Nigeria that was to be sold in Asia.

The cache is believed to be Hong Kong’s largest ever seizure of mixed endangered animal remains and the third one this year.

The haul included 1,120 elephant tusks, 13 rhino horns and five leopard skins.

Officials say the shipment, worth $5m, was shipped from Nigeria to Shanghai before being smuggled to Hong Kong.
