Rangers find eight rhinos dead in record killing
JOHANNESBURG | South African rangers say they have found eight dead rhinoceroses that were stripped of their horns, an unprecedented one-day toll.
Reynold Thakhuli, South African National Parks spokesman, said rangers found the rhinoceros carcasses this week at two sites in Kruger, the country’s flagship national park.
“This is the first time that we’ve had so many in one day, and it’s really a concern for us,” Mr. Thakhuli said Wednesday,
He said 448 rhinos were poached across South Africa in 2011, a record loss. The eight found Tuesday were the first recorded deaths for 2012.
An Asian economic boom in recent years is believed to be behind the spike in poaching, with a growing middle class in countries including China and Vietnam able to afford exotic purported remedies such as powdered rhino horn.
Muslim terrorists kill eight in beer parlor
MAIDUGURI | Police say an Islamist sect has killed eight people, including four police officers and a 7-year-old child, at a beer parlor in northeastern Nigeria.
Local Police Commissioner Tanko Lawan said the attack happened late Tuesday night in Yobe state. He said no arrests have been made but blamed the shooting on a Muslim terrorist sect known as Boko Haram.
The group has been blamed in at least 54 deaths in recent days.
Boko Haram says it has started specifically targeting Christians, exploiting religious tensions in Africa’s most populous nation.
