Ivory seizure...

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Cambodian authorities intercepted 3 tons of illegal ivory on Friday that was stashed in shipping containers, in the largest such seizure in the Southeast Asian country, an official said.
I bet as soon as the dust settles a few of those customs officers are going to be driving shiny new cars as they turn around and resell it.

Funny, I thought it was about stuck piano keys.
Once you've read one of her posts all the rest are just a remix.
