Illegal ivory seized at Hong Kong's Port of Kwai Chung

Hong Kong customs officers have confiscated elephant tusks worth more than $2.2m on the illegal ivory market.

The ivory was hidden beneath planks of wood in a large container that was sent from the African country of Togo.

Officials say this is their largest seizure since 2010, and is likely to have come from baby elephants.
