First Chinese poacher on trial in Africa in 2014

A Chinese man has been ordered to pay 230-thousand-dollars or spend seven years behind bars for trying to smuggle ivory out of Kenya. It’s the first case since the government passed a new law to deter illegal trading in ivory, sentencing anyone who is caught trying to smuggle parts of an endangered species to a fine of not less than 230,000 dollars, life imprisonment or both.

Catherine Soi reports from Nairobi.
