Eight rhinos die in Kenya after relocation

Poaching forced the risky relocation of the rhinos, but it appears that high levels of salt in the water of their new home poisoned the endangered animals.

    An attempt to save black rhinos in Kenya has ended in disaster.

    Eight of the critically endangered animals died after being moved to a national park.

    The surviving rhinos are under watch and further relocations have been suspended.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
